With Sympathy

They are without the most difficult cards to make. But sometimes they are necessary. This card was sent recently to darling friends of ours.
I used PTI's pure white cardstock as my card base. My main layer is PTI ivory cardstock, stamped with this gorgeous baroque design in Brilliance Pearlescent Black ink, coated with clear embossing powder and heat set.

I stitched around the edges with thick, taupe cotton thread and stamped my sentiment which is from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages set.

I then added 3 bronzeish, glass self-adhesive mosaic tiles and sponged the entire card to tone it down a bit as the white and ivory were bright. I wanted this to have a vintage vibe to it.
Like I said, these are very hard cards to make but I hope that it brought some brightness to our friends day during this most difficult time.

Thanks for viewing.
