Another Metallic Sympathy Card

I find it so hard to photograph shiny cards!  This one was obviously no exception!  The sentiment is stamped on a shiny silver foil die cut (Spellbinder's die using StazOn ink and HOTP stamp) and matted on a black die-cut piece.  I added metallic ribbon borders on both edges of the purple/silver metallic paper.  In between these ribbon pieces I put a shaded gray piece of patterned paper that my focal was mounted on using foam tape.  I never would have expected to like the gray as much as I did.  I've always tried to put silver metallic with metallic but the gray set it all off nicely.
