I know somewhere out in cyperspace Stasia is cursing me for this combination. I had originally seen it on Splitcoast and as the saying goes on paper this sounds like a great choice. It is tough not to add color to your card and stick with the neutrals. But I have to say I am happy with my results. I cannot believe I am saying that about myself. I like a card I made. It has a simple yet elegant look to it.
Once again I used the Beate sketch of the week. Her sketches are so helpful to me it gives me such a great jumping off point. I always be mean to post on her blog how much I love her work, but never get a chance so I will say it here I love her work. Her work makes me appreciate stampsets I would never had given a second glance. Back to my card I used the colors of the week River Rock, Basic Gray, and Basic Black. I also was able to use my Sell-a-bration set, Friendship Blooms. Right before I made this card I found out an old friend of mine's mother passed away so I felt I needed to make a sympathy card. I used the saying from Close as a Memory and the Key Tag. The other cards I made I used Circle of Friendship and the Designer Label punch. Thanks so much for looking. And check out Stasia and Tracy's blog for their creations!!!
