With Sympathy

Today started with the sad news that one of our close friends has lost his battle with Cancer, so when I sat to make his wife a card I decided to go monochrome.

For my layout I used the sketch over at the Clean and Simple challenge , and as it's made with several die cuts, I'll try the Less is More challenge again.

Here is the card

I stamped the flower buds in Versamark and heat embossed them with black powder (that's why the camera flash has reflected off them!!). The white card was put through the Big Shot and Nestabilities labels, the side ribbons are SB border dies, and the corners are Marianne designs. The center panel is raised with 3D pads for added dimension.

Recipe :
Card = Whisper White, Basic Black, and card from my stash
Stamps =  Ornate Flowers and Woodware sentiment
Inks = Versamark and Basic Black
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities Labels and Border, Marianne corners, Heat gun
Extras = 3D pads, Xcut corner punch, and Black embossing powder

That's me for today, I cant concentrate after hearing the news, plus I'm still worried about my old neighbour who's still in hospital. The WRI hospital is still in Lock-Down with Norovirus so I cant even visit him, just phone him on his bedside phone, which is not the same as a personal visit, and I seem to always call when he's seeing the Dr, nurse, or is in the bathroom!.

Anyway, I may be back tomorrow, I just don't know how I'll feel.

Thanks for dropping by today and looking at my work.
