Sympathy Card

My husband's Godfather passed away last week.  And so I created this card with the September stamp of the month, Paper Garden.  I wasn't going to buy this set, wasn't sure what I'd use it for, but find now that it was a good thing I did.  It makes a lovely sympathy card.  I pulled old (retired) colors off the shelf.  I used Indian Corn Blue and Pansy Purple, and a current color whisper. 

This is where I got my inspiration for the colors.  I was these birds together at Michael's and thought how pretty a card would be with this combo.

The card design was scrap lifted from Terri Anderson who lifted it from Simone Morton. Thanks Ladies!!!

Nevermore!!  Our current Halloween paper.  I just love it!!  I found this inch and a half think corrugated cardboard "Wicked" at Michael's, and just had to get it. 

So I could turn it into one of this years decorations.
