Sympathy Card - A La Card Monkey

I was invited by the kind crafters at A La Card Monkey to be one of their Guest DTs for this week's challenge - a Sympathy Sketch.  It took me awhile to settle on a color scheme.  Originally I was going to do black and white with a splash of color, but the more I played around with the Cocoa brown, the more I liked it.  

I began by heat embossing the patterned background to give it interest and make it a little fancy.  I stamped the birds in blue after rolling the edges in cocoa to give them that two-tone look.  I put them on some foam tape to make them stand out.  The sentiment panel needed something, so I added a strip of blue there.

The bow and ribbon add the final finishing touch.  Sympathy cards aren't ones I usually make, so this was a nice change of pace.  And I really had fun with the different stamping techniques.  All products are CTMH.
