Loving Memories

Sometimes you need a simple, but thoughtful, card for someone.  Sympathy cards are always difficult, but they mean so much to the recipient.

The colors over at Color My Heart seemed to lend themselves perfectly to this card.  Who would have thought Pear, Barn Red and Sunset would add so much, yet stay subdued under the beautiful tree from CTMH Country Born?  The sentiment is from CTMH Big Hug.

I used a sponge for the Pear and Barn Red.  I used a dauber and streaked the Sunset to give it a little different texture.  The Archival Black makes the sentiment prominent.

I backed the front with Black and Barn Red.  The base of the card is Champagne.  The Baker's Twine seemed to add a little something without taking away the simplicity.

Both stamp sets are still available from CTMH.  You can see them at KatiesCorner!
