Liquid Pearls Sympathy

I love the simple elegance of today's card.  The cream and gold go together so well.  Though the occasion isn't a happy one, I know from personal experience how much a card can mean at a time like this, so I like to have some nice ones on hand.

This card once again showcases that Designables Cutting and Embossing Folder that I like so well.  Matted on gold and touched up with gold Liquid Pearls, I think it looks really elegant. 

The background is deceptively simple.  I simply scored on the diagonal both ways at 1/2" intervals.  I love my Martha Stewart score board for this.  It makes scoring on the diagonal pretty easy.  After scoring, I simply added the gold liquid pearls at each crossing point.

The sentiment is a Dazzles Sticker from Hot Off the Press.
