Heartfelt Sympathy

Good morning, early birds!  Happy Hump Day!  It's time for another Showcase Showdown at The Digi Shack.

I needed a sympathy card for a friend who just lost her brother...she lives overseas, so I needed it to be relatively flat.  I used one of the pretty labels... they are actually a plain white background and come in a set of 6 with different sentiments.

I played with mine in Photoshop a little.  After I added the background I couldn't find the paper I thought I had to match it, so I quickly ran over and made some up.  :O)  All done with the boo boos?  Nope!  I was coloring in between the 2 black lines (with black) and the dog barked and tried to scare the bejeezus right outta me.  Well, you know what happened.  Outside the line I went...or inside.  I was NOT a happy camper!  I brought it over to my trusty CB and used the label die in the same shape and CAREFULLY gave it a bit of a black edge.  OOPS!  It still looks good though.  I'm rather happy with it anyway.  I used Photoshop, nesties, CB, American Crafts ribbon, button and card stock from stash, Fiskars border punch.  I also followed the sketch at Taylored Expressions.  :O)

thanks for the suggestion on my card, I was thinking about that and using perfect pearls pearl color so it would be very subtle, but don't ya think that would be to girly?
