Emboss Resist Sympathy Card

Good Sun. Afternoon!  I wanted to share with you a card I made upon request from the sweet lady that does my nails.  Her family is going thru a difficult time with a family member battling cancer.  She wanted me to make a card to give to her brother ( it is her sis in law).  Card makers would agree that making something serious like a sympathy card is hard, but from time to time, we do have to make them.  I bought a cross stamp set from Michael's a few months back, and this is the first time using it.  I did the emboss resist technique, and used my distress inks.  I used 3 blue colors, chipped sapphire, broken china, and faded jeans.  I die cut my focal image with two scallop dies from my nesties, and for my sentiment, I used one of the tags from fanciful tags.  The patterned paper comes from Authenique called Journey.  I used one of my MS punches to punch the corners to give them a little extra "something".  My card base is from AC's from the cards and envelopes pack. 

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the weekend.  Thanks for stoppin' in!!  :o)
