PSC44:Clean & Simple Sympathy

Welcome back for another FAB challenge with The Perfect Sentiment! This week's challenge is for one of those cards that nobody wants to ever have to buy or make...a sympathy card...but we all one time or another have a need for one. Luckily for me I don't have a use for this and can stash it away in my card file : )

Your challenge is to create a card with a sentiment for sympathy and the twist is to make it CAS (Clean and Simple).

Here's my take on this week's challenge........

I really like the soothing blue tones of this card against the white satin ribbon & white CS.

I didn't want to fussy up this one too much with ink etc since it's a CAS challenge so I embossed a floral image on the blue CS just to give it a little texture/dimension.

Some nice soft satin ribbon I picked up from Kirkland a few years back. Seriously this roll is never ending even though I use it a lot : )

Now for some inspiration from my fellow DT members.........
