Whew!  I am back after a short absence spent with family.  It was a fun filled week with lots of activity – a birthday party, a fishing trip, a paddle boarding excursion,  a movie and of course the road trip.  Today I am sharing a simple sympathy card that I made for a friend who lost her sister.

 After uploading the picture, I realized that I needed something in the flower center so I quickly added an Enamel Shape but it could also have been a small punched flower.  As you can see, I did not mask anything but rather just stamped a variety of flowers with Sahara Sand, Island Indigo & Mint Macaron Inks.  In addition, I stamped the leaves with full both strength ink and stamped off ink.

Island Indigo Cardstock forms my card base with a mat from Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper covering the front panel of my card.  That same DSP is used for a mat to back my sentiment which can be found in the Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set.

The final accessory is a length of Mint Macaron 3/8" Sheer Linen Ribbon which has the "messy" look created by folding it over  multiple times and securing it with glue dots each time.  

This is a quick & easy card – one that I hope you will try.  If you do, please be sure to send me a picture of your card.  I would love to see your creation.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
