OLW #48

Edited to Add:  As suggested by Katina, this also fits into the latest "Less is More" challenge, where the sentiment takes centre stage.

The Brief:  A Sympathy card that doesn't use flowers or trees.

I have just noticed that this image does have leaves....sorry, an oversight.  This card design is an adaptation of one that I have done many times for people though usually 2 layers on navy cardstock (love that stuff).  Fairly happy with the result on 1 layer.

What you need
Cardstock - SU white
Stamps - SU Baroque Motifs;  My Sentiments Exactly
Ink and Marker - SU Night of Navy
Pearls - Kaisercraft


  1. Well it might have broken the "rules" but it IS very beautiful!

  2. Stunning Cassandra! This card fits this week's challenge at Less Is More. http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/

  3. Beautiful card and I love those well placed pearls too.

    If you could add a link to our blog on your posting that would be great.

  5. A simple and effective card which would be bound to comfort the bereaved


  6. Really beautiful card...really like the navy in place of the same old black. Must remember this!

  7. Cassandra, this is really pretty! I like the navy stamping...I tend to always use black.

  14. I love it too, such a beautiful swirl, loving the navy and the pearls really complete it also :O) Viv xx

  15. Lovely sympathy card, the blue is a super deep colour.

  16. Well, the leaves are incidental here...the flourish is the main idea! And what a lovely card! I particularly like how you used the pearls to create a visual triangle!
