with heartfelt sympathy

Back with another sympathy card inspired by the CAS-ual Fridays Kraft and White Color Challenge. I really thought this would make for a soothing palette... but it's really put my skill set to the test. LOL

I wanted a more masculine look for a card to send to my Uncle Charlie. I debated about the twine bow, but felt like it needed a little something to tie -- no pun intended -- the sentiment to the focal point image.

Stampin' Up! crumb cake; stash white cardstock
Paper Smooches botanicals 2 image and die; PS graceful beauties sentiment
stamping and inking in SU tip top taupe
SU stitched oval die; SU/Sizzix embossing folder
SU linend thread; adhesives: Scotch ATG, foam backing

Think that's it for tonight. As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
