Sketch Challenge At Heart 2 Heart

Take two. I already finished this post but it did not save. Ugh. I hate when that happens.

I am sorry for anyone who has been following my blog, expecting new projects everyday this month. I got really sick, even had to go to the hospital, so I haven't been able to make it into the craft room. Plus I chose to do that on a whim so I did not have projects already done. Oh Well. I can always try later in the year.

We have a new challenge for you over at {Heart 2 Heart}. This week is a sketch challenge, made by me. (happy claps). 

Now you can follow this sketch exactly, or can use it as a guide. Just as long as we can see that this sketch is what inspired you. 

Sadly to say, I needed a sympathy card this week. My step grandmother passed. And I need a card to send to my parents. As a rule, you want sympathy cards to be simple and elegant. So I chose to do a one layer cards using Black and Smokey Plum as my colors. 
How I followed the sketch was I used the background stamp for my rectangle and my sentiment is where the banners are. 

The flower is from an old retired set. It has a lot of the long, silhouette flowers. I thought of this set immediately when I knew I needed a sympathy card. I needed the background to be more muted than it was, so I took a baby wipe and pounced on the stamp. It is kinda hard to see in the photo, but the flower and the sentiment are in Smokey Plum.

I hope you will join us this week at {Heart 2 Heart}. You have all month to play along with all of the challenges for this month.  You will need to use some Close To My Heart products to play along.
