Sympathy card

Hello bloggers!  I'm stopping by tonight very quickly to share a sympathy card I made for a friend who lost her mother and sister-in-law on the same day.

I have had this Darice embossing folder for a little while, and this was the perfect chance to use it.  Before I embossed the paper, I blended Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, and Peacock Feathers on Bristol Smooth card stock.  I found a gold leaf pen in my drawer, so I went around the edge of the panel with it.  The sentiment is embossed with Recollections gold embossing powder, which I thought matched that gold leaf pen pretty well.  I have to say, this is the first time I have dared tried blending these inks on Bristol Smooth, and I am in love!  It looks gorgeous...I can't wait to do it again!  :)
