With Sympathy

Joan's Graden challenge #28 ( ) wanted us to use red and black, have a flower be the focal point, a border at the bottom, and use an embossing folder.  I kind of stretched  the border req78rejeht  at the bottom as anything I put with my checkerboard background just looked "stupid", the design of the checkerboard edge I'm calling my border. First I wove the strips of paper, then embossed the whole.  I then mounted it on red cardstock which I then adhered to the grey cardstock base.  Sadly I needed a sympathy card and didn't want a typical subdued kind of card.  This is what I ended up with.  Thanks Joan for this challenge's criteria which gave me a good jumping off point.
