Silver and Gold Sympathy Card

As leader of my card group at church, I make numerous sick and sympathy cards.  Here is a white card adorned with silver and gold.  I don't know why the scanner picked up some blue as it is heavy silver cardstock that a friend gave me.  It is a very bright silver.  The mat is gold cardstock on which I stamped a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs.  On top of that I use a Cheery Lynn Designs die called Polynesian Sails. This was cut out of silver. In order to join the Classy Cards and Such I needed a handmade flower. I do not really have anything to make the pretty roses yet (that is on my Wish List) so I took the center of the Polynesian die and cut it down to size. Then I used a punch and made some petals out of gold. The center is a brad with a stone.  This is a flat flower and hopefully will not cost additional postage.

This card is for the Cheery Lynn Designs' challenge of Silver and Gold and for Classy Cards and Such's challenge CCNS #12 Handmade Flowers.
