I thought the color challenge at Fab Friday would make a good masculine sympathy card. My first attempts landed in the scrap pile. As I looked over the bits I was playing with I remembered the sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch and realized I had something I could work with. I started by dry embossing the card base in Soft Suede card stock. The leaf and berry image was water colored with Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry and fussy cut. I tucked it behind a strip stamped with a Paper Smooches sentiment. Finally, I added a scattering of rhinestones. I didn't take the sketch literally but followed the impression of it with the scattered images, horizontal element and a sentiment. The resulting card isn't as masculine as I first intended, but I am pleased with the results.
