Loss

For whatever reason this card was extremely difficult to make.  Well, I guess I know . . . I just didn't have anything that worked for my upper panel.  Nothing seemed to be the right color and it just wasn't working for me.  Finally, I discovered that sheet of tan paper in my stash and with a little inking around the edges it works.  Unfortunately, I am in need of a couple sympathy cards right now.  They aren't usually ones that I make, but I really should make some to have in my stash.

Challenges:
CRAFT #196--embossing (the blue panel is embossed with an embossing folder and inked with SU! creamy caramel ink)
DRS Designs #61--sympathy
JUGS #178--sketch


Supplies:
Stamps: Skipping Stones Designs "Dandelion Dreams"; Verve "Joyful Blooms" sentiment; Hero Arts "French Script
Dies/embossing folders: Verve "Charming Ovals" dies; Cuttlebug tin embossing folder
