To create a soft look on this sympathy card, I use some Mulberry paper that I've had in my stash forever! See my post, here, for the info on this beautiful technique. It's a little hard to see in the photo, but the yellow panel was stamped with a background image in the same color ink and the edges were inked with the same color. In real life, it's a very subtle, pretty look.
