Sympathy with Silhouettes II

Crops can be fun and inspirational. I attended one this past weekend with a plan to complete a card for an upcoming color challenge and also four sympathy cards. In the end, two of my sympathy cards worked for the color challenge and two of them will be added to my personal card stash. (It's so much better to have a sympathy card already made when someone passes.) Following is what I made that are not for the color challenge and have been added to my personal stash. The challenge cards made at the crop can be viewed HERE.

A panel of embossed cardstock was added to the black card base. Using a masking technique the circle was sponged. The image was stamped over the moon, die cut then backed with scalloped die cut circles. This was adhered using foam tape for dimension. The sentiment was stamped, trimmed, backed with a scrap of black cardstock and popped up with foam tape. Two black gems were added. The inside was decorated with coordinating paper plus a stamped design and sentiment.
