With Sympathy Bird Frame Card

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
For the inside I used my Simon says stamp large stitched rectangle die to cut the light purple Mat and then I used the corner Chomper on both right corners.  I cut two of the frame mats for my sentiment which I stamped with a cardmakers kit Sympathy stamp  and inked the edges with walnut stain distress ink.  I used a swirly flower diecut from my unbranded dies, cut from the dark purple as an embellishment for the sentiment.
