My first card today is a Sympathy card for a friend who recently lost her Dad. I used some velvet SEI paper, one of my favorite Sizzlet Embosslets and a new embossing folder.  I traced the embossing with a black glitter gel pen to bring out the sentiment and the edge.  I am going to enter this at Word Art Wednesday challenge #127 Anything Goes.

Here it is!

I feel bad.  I'm at that age where friends are losing parents and spouses.  I make cards all the time but never think to make Sympathy cards - they are always birthday cards, christmas cards, thank you cards, get well etc.  

My next card uses Mojo Monday sketch #340.

The sketch:
