Clear It Out Challenge #11 - Sympathy

Clear It Out Challenges is all about clearing out your stash, hence, the name :)

Our challenge is sympathy and you must use dark papers from your stash. Sympathy cards may seem difficult, but they are actually quite simple.

With sympathy, you don't have to be over the top and you can keep everything CAS. Of course, if you need to add some bling (like me), there is nothing wrong with doing so.
Digi Darla is our wonderful sponsor and I was able to use one of their digis for this creation. It's actually a poinsettia, but I figured it would work, especially since I sparkled it up with glitter.

The style of this card can be used for any kind of sympathy, too.

Have you made a sympathy card before? What did you decide was the best look?

If you haven't, definitely join us at Clear It Out Challenges!

This card was submitted to these wonderful challenge blogs.
