Second Helpings for The Card Concept!

I KNOW!  it has been a crazy long time since I've been excited enough to make Second Helpings for a challenge ... THAT is how much I LOve neutrals  - like in this fab photo:

I went really dark this time, but in a very gorgeous way, to me at least.  My chosen papers for the leaves were inspired by the variations of grey in the chipped paint/wood from that gorgeous old chair.

I think it may fall into the Clean and Simple category this time:

Die-namics leaves dies; PTI Smokey Slate card base. 
T.T sentiment embossed in Platinum - very pretty IRL.
P.P. from a SSS monthly kit - ? month?
 
That's it for me ... I think I've bugged you enough for one day!   thanks, as always, for stopping by ...

Ok. We all know I'm called the Damsel of Distressed but that's really only because I'm shite at thinking in anything other than messy texture. But lemme tell ya, I saw this design and GASPED. It is so pristinely beautiful. Totally pinned so I can totally drool over this again later.

Sympathy cards are so hard, but this strikes just the right tone. Love the colors you chose for the leaves, the woodgrain, and the height.

Your neutral card here is only so in 'name'; in reality, it's warm, comforting and embracing. Beautiful sympathy card...you've captured the gentle essence of what such cards should be...
