The code word at Addicted to CAS for this challenge is sympathy... one of those cards we all hate to make but that I think are probably the most meaningful ones to send. As it's a tough one to create, I hope you'll find some inspiration from the design team as well as share your ideas with us!
When I go to make sympathy cards I tend towards more muted colours and a simple design. I really love how this card turned out. I taped off the edges of my card and placed my stencil over top and stencilled the blue ink through the flowers. I then went back wth the turquoise ink and blended over top of everything to help mute the blue and make it not so stark of a pattern in the centre of the card.
