sympathy card

My second card is one I made for Thursday's

"ways to use it challenge" on Splitcoaststampers.  Kim, our hostess, challenged us to use gray as our neutral color instead of white or vanilla.  

She gave us some tips. (suggestions)

1. grey is typically a masculine color but can be pretty when adding girly elements to it
2. silver is another option
3. add a pop of color on a grey base.
4. grey goes with all play and have fun!

I used gray as my card base and combined it with Stampin-Up's bashful blue designer paper & satin ribbon. I also used basic gray designer paper on the squares.

My flowers are dimensional stickers from k & company. I made this a sympathy card since I have need of a couple.
My layout comes from Wednesdays sketch challenge on splitcoaststampers.

A few other challenges:

1.  Stampin' B's challenge #99 wanted us to use flowers on our creation.
2.  Shelly's images blog wants us to use ribbon on our cards.
3.  The crafty sentiments blog was urging us to think spring.

That's both cards for today. So until next time.......

card recipe:
stamps: pti
