With Sympathy

Hi there . Hope that you are all well . Thank you so much for calling in , I really do appreciate your visit and love it if you let me know,  via a comment .
Today I would like to share another Sympathy card with you .

 I am hoping that the black card base is not too severe even for a Sympathy card . Whisper White and Pumpkin Pie layers worked together to soften the black , I think . Would you agree ?
The image in Soft Suede is " Sympathy Crane"by Yvette.
Still trying to soften the card I grouped together three flowers from my stash with a SU Rhinedtone Brad centre. Then luckily I had some similar coloured rhinestones for opposite corner.
Love the E K  corner punch , which I also used for the insert .
I am so wrapped in taking photos outside where you don't need a flash . Tried to follow some advise I had from one of my viewers [ hope you know who you are ...let me know if you think of any other words of wisdom you can pass on . ]
Thanks too to Michelle who has always encouraged me to take outside shots of cards .
Scanning does not always do your cards justice I have found .
Any way love you all lots but must go .  Catch you again soon , cheers Shirley-Anne.

Would like to enter this card into   Anything Goes (NO CHRISTMAS CARDS ALLOWED!!!!!) over at

Great colour combo!! I think it works beautifully for this sympathy card.

Corner punch is fantastic and gives a great look to the inside of your card too.
