Simply Chocolate....

I hope everyone is having a Great Wednesday! I'm still fighting this cold that I've had for weeks, and the cold is currently winning. I did manage to sneak in a 3 hour nap today and I felt a little better after I woke up, but that didn't last long. I hope you've all been able to keep this never ending cold out of your homes. My entire family has had it, and it seems like it's not going anywhere anytime soon.

Yesterday I was able to get out of the house long enough to pick up some goodies at Michael's so I wanted to play with them today. I made the following card as a sympathy card for a woman who lost her father yesterday.

 I used Me & My Big Ideas "Fashion District" paper along with a shiny brown cardstock from my scraps. I bought my first Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad yesterday in the Frayed Burlap color, so I add just a bit of color to the edges of the top layer.  I finished off the card with a velvet-like ribbon and a stamped chipboard with a little bling. It's a super simple card but I really love the colors. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you continue to Create A Crafty Life ~
