Another Sympathy Card

Hi Stampers!
I decided to create a card with the colors from this week’s Pals Paper Arts PPA88 Celebrity Color Challenge (see http://www.palspaperarts.com/) and the sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary (see http://www.createwithconnieandmary.com/ ).  I love all of the Design Team projects along with the other entries- again, if you ever need inspiration, the weekly challenges are wonderful! 
To create this card:
Stamp the floral image from Happiness Shared in Basic Black onto Whisper White.  Color the image using SU! markers in Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz.
Mount onto Pear Pizzazz and punch the edge with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. 
Use the Big Shot to emboss a piece of Crumb Cake DSP with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder.  Lightly sand with the Sanding Block to expose the white core. 
Attach the 5/8” Daffodil Delight ribbon, adhere the focal image and attach the bow.  Add the pearls and the sentiment to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets:  Happiness Shared, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Basic Black
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake DSP  
Accessories:  Big Shot, Framed Tulips EF, Sanding Block, Pearls, 5/8” Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon, Scallop Trim Border, Modern Label and Word Window Punch, SU! Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz Markers
Thank you for stopping by- I hope all of you are enjoying your week!
