Sympathy (with a catch!)

Today is Day 143 at 365 Cards. The theme is Sympathy, but there is a catch! This 'Keep it to Yourself' challenge is to create a Sympathy card without putting the sentiment on the front. Whew...sounds like a CAS card to me, and you all know how I get along with CAS!!!

I found a scrap piece of printed vellum that worked perfectly on a light gray card. The stamp is Inkadinkado, inked with Charcoal ColorBox Chalk Ink. Add a ribbon - voila! A five minute card!

Hope you like it!

I'm kind of wondering where both my two cents go since no one listens to me anyway! LOL

Pretty card, Patti. You could actually use this one for a wedding... changing the greeting, of course... or not. Ha!

Love and hugs,
Lisa
