For today's card I am sharing a Sympathy card based on a sketch over at YNS blog.
Sympathy cards are always tough for me so it really helps to start with a sketch.
I grunged up the edges with walnut distress ink to soften the bright cheerful colors and tone them down for the look I was going for. The background pattern paper was just a scrap left over in my stash as are the two different blues that I used on the frame. Both shades of purple card stock are from bazzil. I used my corner rounder to soften the look and go nicely with the frame and border.
The bird frame - Cricut Cindy Loo cartridge
Border - Cricut Essentials cartridge
Words With Sympathy - Cricut Wild Card Cartridge
