Unfortunately I needed a sympathy card for a long-time friend.  I didn't want anything too fussy or busy, but wanted something rather elegant looking, I think my card filled the bill, what do you think?

The paper is a subtle shimmer texture so it doesn't photograph well.  It was a fairly quick card to make, just making decisions is my downfall, it's what takes so much time!!!!
Finally decided on black CS for the frame and a little red bird for some color accent. Forgot to take a pictures of the inside, sorry.

Here is a side view that captures some of the sheen. It's really very pretty in real life.

Always nice to hear from other bloggers, hope to hear from you.

Supplies used:
Paper: PTI Shimmer Cream stock-Silver
Sentiment: Stampin' Up Love & Sympathy
Embossing folder: Darice-Tree (maybe from Hobby Lobby)

FINALLY posted! I've been looking each day, but nothing... sorry you had to post under sad circumstances though. The card is stunning! Love the simple embossing of the tree, and the paper is gorgeous. Just lovely.

This shimmer paper is GORGEOUS. Perfect to highlight the beautiful embossed tree. The little bird is the perfect touch. I'm sure it will be appreciated by the recipient.
