A So Sorry card for so many occasions

This brayered So Sorry card was a club project from last month. I love brayering as a technique. It covers the surface quickly and easily. I used glossy white card stock for the brayered layer, first brayering the entire piece with Daffodil Delight ink, then going back and adding Pumpkin Pie ink from the top and bottom to make a sunset of sorts. A punched circle from a sticky note makes a nice mask for the sun.

After that, I stamped the sentiment and image from Serene Silhouettes in Basic Black ink. I left the inside blank, so this could be So Sorry times are tough right now, or So Sorry for the loss of your beloved pet, So Sorry you've been ill, or even So Sorry this is late. There are many options available.

Heidi's card here inspired mine.

The glossy card stock was the perfect choice and your braying is great!
