Simple Sympathy

For Cuttlebug challenge #13, I knew I wanted to use my Bird Call embossing folder, and finally break out my chalks (still following my New Year's resolution to use my stuff!). They're glimmer chalks, so the bird has a beautiful sheen, without being sparkly.
It's a very simple card, but I tend to prefer simple for sympathy cards. I don't have many appropriate sentiments, so I left the front without one. If you haven't heard, PaperTrey Ink is releasing a new sympathy set, and I think it's the one I need!

Stamps: none!
Paper: Whisper White, Mellow Moss cardstock (SU)
Ink: none!
Accessories: Bird Call EF, CB (Provocraft), Glimmer Chalks (Craf-T), Pearls (Kaiser), ribbon (unknown)

This card's great... it's sooo simple! It's like one I'D make! You're still my hero.......... Did you get my e-mail about the retiring stamps I wanted? Any thoughts?

A beautiful card - I love the way you have highlighted the bird. I have used this folder in the same kind of way but I never thought of making the bird pop in that way. Will have to put it in the memory bank.
I'm celebrating becoming a design team member at the Cuttlebug challenge and am having a blog candy give away. Do pop over to my blog at and enter if you have time.
