With Sympathy - {The Challenge #16}

Hello everyone!  I've got some exciting news to share today.  I was asked by the talented Lesley Croghan to join The Challenge design team and happily excepted.  I'm looking forward to working with Lesley and the rest of The Challenge team.  I really like the concept of The Challenge, because you can design a card using just the sketch or challenge colors or both.
 For my card, I used both the sketch and colors from The Challenge #16 to create a sympathy card.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Rosie Posie along with Think Big Favorites #3 for my sentiment.  I started out with a black card base, added a panel of white and an embossed panel of Going Gray.  To add a little softness around my sentiment circle I used the PTI Rustic Wreath die with velum.
Please be sure to visit the rest of The Challenge team so you can check out what they've created:
