A Sympathy Card

This is a card I made for a friend who lost her husband quite suddenly at a very young age.  My friend Jan's sister made one much better but with the same kid of design.  I loved how she masked the oval and sponged the edge.  I stamped it with Stamping Up's French word block and in Close To My Hearts Chocolate ink 2nd generation so it would be a little muted.  Then I stamped a tree stamp that I got from Michael's in Grey Wool ink from Close To My Heart over top.  I will post the inside as well, but I think I'm going to have to do that on a separate post as the picture keeps going sideways. Well added it anyways as it doesn't seem to change.   The sentiment if from Cornish Heritage Farms, but an old one and I don't think it's still availiable.  I'm not big on how I placed it and think the embossing might be a little to start.  I'll be playing with a few different ideas on it, but this will work for now.  On the inside I placed the center of the cut out oval On the card and sponged lightly around it getting the reverse look. Then placed the outer part back on and stamped the top of the tree peeking through.  I added a tad of Papertrey's gold sheer ribbon on the fron.
Hugs xx
