MMSC83 - Sympathy

Greetings once more to my cyber visitors.

I wanted to make a sympathy card for a neighbour, and unexpectedly had the time to do it this afternoon.

It was quite a quick card to make and I was pleased with the result.
Although the base card looks to be a light brown IRL it is gold with a delightful shimmer - not too much, just enough to be elegant.
The white layer was embossed using the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls folder, and  then the card was split diagonally and mounted on the gold.
The sentiment was embossed in gold, cut using a Spellbinders Nestability Classic Oval large (#4) and mounted on the matching scalloped oval.
This was deliberately mounted in this "cut off" manner to match the sketch challenge at  Midnight Madness.
The finishing touches were the ribbon and pearls.

I am linking this to 
Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #83

Thanks for visiting, and I love it when you comment - all comments are very much appreciated.
May your day be blessed.
