PCCCS177 - So Sorry

Time for another sketch challenge with the Paper Craft Crew.  This week's sketch seems simple but you'll see from all the Design Team creations that it can be left simple or made quite fancy.  It's that type of sketch.

With all the types of cards we make, there is one that we always hope won't be needed.  You know which type that is:  the sympathy card.  For some reason when I saw this sketch, that's the only style of card which came to mind.  I don't really enjoy making them.  I always begin that downward spiral of thinking.  You know, all about mortality and loss and begin to get into a bit of a blue funk.  It's probably a good thing that I don't wait for one of these cards to be needed.  Having a few on hand makes it easier when the time comes.

Now that I've depressed myself and everyone else, lets get to the card.  I kept all my colours rather monochromatic.  I used Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, Basic Grey and Basic Black.  The Designer Series Paper which I used to stamp the "So Sorry" on is from the wonderful Timeless Elegance collection.  I even chose the black sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment and some of the Linen thread which is so close in colour to the Sahara Sand.

I like the way all the products work together in my card.  It's elegant and lovely but I hope I won't have to use it anytime soon.
