Sympathy card

Good Morning,
A friend asked me to make a sympathy.   It is not a fun card to make but a very important card to give.  She asked for a 5 x 7.  Now, if you are my regular blog reader, you knew I always had a hard time making a standard A2 card and  I was not thrilled to be asked to make this huge card but I took on the challenge.

Here is the card.

I am embarrassed to tell you how long it took me to make this card.  But I thought it turn out pretty nice.  I turned in the card to her yesterday and she liked it.  Phew!!!  A note to self: I should have more confident in myself. :)

The card layout was from an old Mojo Monday.

Supplies: all SU card stocks - Kraft, basic black, retired DSP, and Very Vanilla
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, So Saffron, and Black Stazon
Ribbon - Very Vanilla
Brad - black  (none SU)
Word window punch and Modern Label punch

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great day!

Your sympathy card is very pretty. I especially like the colors and the floral stamp image.
