Sympathy Card

Hello friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far! Monday is over - whoo hoo!! Anyway, I am one of the featured design team members at Getting Cricky today. For my project I made this multi-fold card (at least I think that's what it's called). I only make sympathy cards when I have to, but sometimes they're just necessary. It's a sad but true part of life. I made this for a friend of ours who just lost her 108-year-old grandfather. Personally, I think making it to 108 is cause for celebration, but I realize this is still a sad time for the family. As far as sad sentiments go, I really love this one....

SIZE:  5x7" (outside card), A2 (inside card)
CARTRIDGE:  "Elegant Edges"
PAPER:  Kraft cardstock, K & Company "Bailey" paper pad
INKCTMH Exclusive Inks "Chocolate"
OTHEROffray ribbon, Fiskars corner punch, Martha Stewart mini pearls, Scrapbook Adhesives pop dots

The lovely sentiment came from this K Andrew Designs stamp set....
