With Sympathy

Mornin' hens!  I have to admit, as much as I LOVE card marking, this is not the type of card I enjoy making.  Although, knowing that it may bring my friend comfort to know she is being thought of, makes it all worth while.  The card was quite simple to make actually since there was no coloring involved.  I embossed the DP with the same damask pattern as the DP and then matted it to some green CS using my Perfect Layers tool.  Using my Spellbinder Nestabilities, I created this nested label with the black and green cardstock, and patterned DP.  The sentiment is from an older Taylored Expressions set and I just added a few brads for interest.  I adhered the sentiment with a few dimensionals in between the layers and then finished by adding the black satin ribbon tied in a sweet bow.  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a TERRIFIC Tuesday and I'll see ya back in the hen house real soon.
