Today's CAS challenge is to use a neutral colour palette based on a inspiration photo. I needed to make a pet sympathy card so thought the palette would be just right.
I had the perfect dp that really matches the inspiration photo - in real life, the dp is much browner than in the photo where it looks almost black. I let the sentiment take centre stage, heat embossed it, die cut it and sponged around it while the die was still in place, and popped it up on dimensionals.

What an uplifting pet sympathy card. The sentiment is wonderful and I like how you let it be the focus of the card without goobering it up with embellishments and designer paper and such. Simple and elegant! Nicely done. TFS
