Metallic Sympathy

(click on photos to view larger images)

While it is fun making cards, it's never fun when you need a sympathy card. A dear friend of mine lost her daughter this month to a rare disease caused by an infection. I made this card for her. 

I mounted this beautiful decoupage rose on to COPPER METAL mirricard (super heavy card stock). Then I mounted the entire focal piece on a 6x6 white card base, scored with 2 lines across each corner, and stamped the sentiment. (I did stamp an inside sentiment from same stamp set, but forgot to get a photo of it.... stamp is from Stampin' Up! Thoughts & Prayers set)

Here's a couple different angles showing the decoupage layers. The outside patterned frame is popped up from the copper metal layer, while the largest rose circle is attached flat to the copper metal card stock, and built up from there.... each layer is 1/16" higher each.

I am entering this card in to the challenge at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge - Show Us Your Metal
