Sympathy Card

Unfortunately, I needed a Sympathy card recently for a friend. Her husband passed away unexpectedly, so I thought I'd send this to her to let her know that she is being thought of.

I just got this stamp set from my last club order. It is Fifth Ave Floral from SU. I kept telling myself not to get it - I really didn't need another floral set did I?? Well, sample after sample brought me to order this set. It is a beautiful set and different from my other floral sets - this one is a bit more 'classy' or 'elegant' - at least I think so.

I also combined this card with a challenge over on the StampinUpLNStampers yahoo group - embossing. The background on the card is done using one of the Big Shot Texturz - Flourish. I then took the Always Artichoke ink pad and swiped it across - I tried to just hit the raised portion, but I don't think it looks bad even with ink in spots I didn't want. *wink*

Stamps: Fifth Ave Floral, Thoughts & Prayers
CS: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, WW
Ink: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Always Artichoke
Other: Big Shot Texturz Background #1 - Flourish, Celery Grosgrain Ribbon, Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, Stamping Sponge, Stampin' Dimensionals

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!! Hope you'll stop back by to visit me!!
