Hero Team-up & Embellish Challenge with Background Stamping

Karen and I team up again today, this time with sympathy cards.




I just hope I'm not tempting fate, I've historically only made sympathy cards when I needed them. I don't have any sympathy sentiments by Hero Arts (where our team up challenge was born, stay with me, people) so I pulled out some PTI to work with as well. All of these cards meet the newest Embellish Magazine challenge--white, yellow, grey & black with background stamping--and I'm mostly happy with how they turned out. I made my own box pleated trim (hooray, sewing machine) but I will never sew on organdy ribbon, not even a short strip, ever again. Ever.
