It is starting to feel more and more like autumn around here. The mornings are chilly. The leaves are starting to change colors. It's football season. Go Patriots!!
All the good shows are starting back up again. I'm looking forward for new episodes of Glee and Parenthood and The Amazing Race. I might watch some of Survivor. Jimmy Johnson is a contestant this time around and I think it will be interesting to watch him interact with the other players.
This week's Curtain Call Color Challenge worked perfectly with the change in season.
I created a sympathy card using these muted, almost somber colors and the Clean & Simple Fall to Layout #107 sketch.
I don't know why I almost always reach for this tree when making a sympathy card. I used just a touch of the white as an accent and let the other colors take center stage. The only other embellishing was a chocolate button, some Glimmer Mist applied with a fine paint brush to the flowers and a bit of green colored pencil on the leaves.
Simple and understated. This could be a masculine card too. Just switch out the sentiment.
