Sharon's With Sympathy Challenge

Sharon Johnson's challenge is to make a sympathy card. So here is my take on this challenge. The cardstock and papers are just from my stash. I used Spellbinders Labels 5 (I think) on the gold cardstock. Oval Nestabilities. I stamped the image from JustRite's Thinking of You in Versamark. Then added Gold Embossing Powder and Heat set it. The ribbon is from Sharon's Store and it is 1.25" Silk Taupe. The charm came from Hobby Lobby. I also cut Vintage Dies with my Cuttlebug to put in the top corners.

I apologize for the photos...it was night time when I took these and the quality is pitiful. But I have set up a new way to take my photos for the future and hope this will work well.

Another short post...I've got some shopping that has to get done today.

Wishing you all a great weekend and thank you for your comments. Greatly appreciated!
