embellish magazine challenge-kraft, black, red and white

Hello!  Today I have a card for the embellish color challenge-kraft, black, white and red.  This contest ends tonight at 11.59, so hurry, hurry!  I stamped the medallion and Fleur de Lis to create the background.  All stamps are from the ippity set, Regal Greetings.  So many possibilities with this stamp set.  I happen to have one left on sale for only $14.00!  Click HERE to find out more!

I struggle with sympathy cards, and unfortunately I needed one this week.  I think the hardest thing with sympathy cards is whether it is too much or too little.  The card is supposed to lift the receiver's spirits, yet you don't want to over do it too much. I also don't want it too look like I threw is together quickly either.   KWIM?

edited:  I just realized I was supposed to make a party themed card! YIKES!  A sympathy card definitely doesn't fit that criteria, but I still enjoyed these awesome colors!

Hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
