Snowflake Sympathy

Do you have a certain type of card that you think you make better than others?  For me it seems to be sympathy cards. A stampin' friend of mine lost her Father in Law right after Christmas and this card just seemed to have a mind of it's own when being created.

The base is Island Indigo, embossed with the Argyle Embossing Folder, next a layer of Basic Black and then a layer of Silver Foil.  The Silver Foil sheets are being carried over into the Occasions catalog and if you haven't gotten them yet I suggest you do so, they make such an impact on a card.  The focal point is the snowflake from the Best of Snow.  And is stamped in Midnight Muse and sponged with Pool Party and Marina Mist to soften the front.  A rhinestone was added to the center and a sentiment underneath and I love the results.  Definitely not a sympathy card you would find at the Hallmark Store.

Let me know what you think.
