Special Sympathy

Hello everyone,

Today's card is for a very close girlfriend who has a friend who recently suffered a tragic loss.

The background layers are Stampin' Up Dusty Durango and Handsome Hunter. The focal paper is recently acquired origami paper layered on Dusty Durango. The sentiment is Gina K Garden Silhouettes. The embellishments are Multicrafts Keepsakes Memories.

While this card is not necessarily traditional, my girlfriend just loved this particular piece of paper. Her friend is a big proponent of organ donation and I was told that green is the colour for this cause. I placed the brads on the diagonal to mimic the angles in the paper and it couldn't have worked more beautifully. While sympathy cards are among the least pleasant cards to craft, I think this one will work perfectly to express the sentiment.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
