The cards most challenging for me are cards for boys and men and sympathy cards. I don't know why cards for boys and men are so tough...I get why sympathy cards are difficult. There is a fine line between tasteful and over done, I think.
I made this card last night for someone who recently lost her mother and it came together pretty quickly. I had seen new Cuttlebug embossing folders at Joann's that had a border strip with them. I bought a couple and was wanting to use one so decided on this chevron which is called "Charles". I don't know if chevrons translate to sympathy cards well but I liked the way this ended up.
I entered this in the following challenge:
