Simply Classic Card

I saw this card layout on the Clean and Simple blog and decided to try my hand at it.

The flowers are prima flowers that I got long ago from a secret sister. I'm really NOT a flower person on cards...so a little goes a long way for me...this jar will probably last me the rest of my life! LOL. I do like the way this turned out though.

Can you see that I dry embossed on the card? It's kind of hard to see on the white. But I did a single line above the three squares and a double line below the three squares. The greeting is from Close to My Heart. Here's the inside (the rest of the greeting):

Did you read about the 93 year old man who froze to death? He was behind on his electric bill so apparently they installed some device that limits his usage and if he reaches the limit it turns off and it has to be "rebooted" in order to give any more power. This man was a WWII vet (like my father) who fought for our country. It makes me sick. Yes, there are resources out there that I'm sure COULD have helped...but would a 90+ year old man know about those resources and would he physically be able to go out and get them? The neighbor said there was money paperclipped to the bills on the table. He was going to pay. He wasn't trying NOT to. I don't know all the details...just what I've read in the news. But if it's like the news states...then I think that electric company is guilty of killing him.

On that dreary note, I need to get ready for work.

Gorgeous card Jane.

Your story about the elderly gentleman is a sad one. I think it is time companies became accountable for things like this. There is no conscience in big business.

Take care
