We have a great fall photo for your inspiration this week at Just Us Girls. I was in the need for a Sympathy card this week so I decided to see if I could pull off combining this challenge with that type of card. Not sure I love it, but it will have to do. I also used one of my very first Stampin Up stamp sets called Branching Out for this card. The colors are a bit muted as I used Distress Oxide Inks, and kinda wish I hadn’t in hind sight. I added some splatters and some fun glass beads. The sentiment is from Verve!
Please come on over to JUGS and check out what the team and our Guest Julie did with the photo this week. Take care, Nanc’

A lovely card in all respects: the soft, muted background, the pretty autumn-leaves tree, the heart-warming sentiment. Hope you’re have a fabulous time with Bobby and Michele! Looking forward to stories!

Such a gorgeous background – sympathy cards are always so tough to make but this one is really amazing and will be very comforting to the recipient – AWESOME!

I love your background, it doesn’t appear muted at all. Sorry that you need a sympathy card but this certainly fits the bill. 🙂

The Oxides work beautifully, Nancy, and I love the leaves blowing in the wind. It’s a lovely sympathy card without being too somber.
