Sweet Stamps, Sympathy

I tried several pictures of this card to get the color correct, the ribbon actually matches much better than this.  Our challenge at Sweet stamps was to make a sympathy card which is always very easy for me as I need lots of them in this elderly community we live in.  I think these new Marianne Designables cut and emboss folders are perfect for so many things.  They are available from Sweet stamps as is the saying.  She has a lot of very nice vertical sayings which are hard to find.  Check out the design teams cards, I know for a lot of you sympathy is a hard card to make.  I used the coordinations paper and sanded the embossed part a little bit to bring out the core color.  Gold mirror card is behind the embossed cut outs and the saying.
