Die cuts and stamping



WOW! No sooner did I finish this sympathy card, I opened my email to find a challenge that required a stamp (With Sympathy) and 2 or more die cuts (Spellbinders , Labels 17, Nestabilities ). I also used Quick Quotes Chalking  ink (Mocha Mama & Tahiti) to color the petals. I also used Liquid Pearls to dot the edges.
Since the other challenge from HIMCR required layers, this worked in perfectly!

These are always difficult cards to create but the combo of blue and brown turned out to be quite soft and calming. 
Please, leave a comment since I LOVE reading them and also follow my blog (gotta get those numbers up to 350!!!
