4 Crafty Chicks Sympathy with Triple Mat Challenge #354

Today is another marks my second week as guest designer at 4 Crafty Chicks.  This week's challenge is #354 Sympathy with Triple Mat challenge.  This is only the second time I have made a triple mat card.  I decided to change up the traditional look and create some different sizes.  I also took a cue from some pinterest ideas and embossed part of the layers.

I thought this Our Daily Bread Designs stamp and die duo set was a very good investment and I have used it many times.
