This sympathy card is my experiment with a sky technique I learned (thanks Marge!) using a torn paper towel & sponges. I wondered if the effect would create as layered a sky in shades of gray as it does in shades of blue or sunset colors. I find that this winter night scene makes me almost want to put on a hat & scarf. It also convinces me that I will never run out of new things to do with the very first stamp set I ever purchased from Stampin' Up. Lovely as a Tree contains unlimited possibilities.
