Baby Blossoms Sympathy

If you saw yesterday's card you will see that I used the same stamped frame image for my birthday card.  The Baby Blossoms Stamp Set - new in the Occasions Mini catalog - is one of those sets that can be used in so many different ways.

For today's sympathy card I started with Baja Breeze cardstock stamped on the front with Crumb Cake ink and one of the flowers from the stamp set.  The two layers are Basic Gray and Not Quite Navy cardstock which was also embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon was tied onto this layer which was accented with cut flowers and leaves.  The ink used on the flowers was Cajun Craze, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake, and the leaves were inked with Old Olive Ink.  The frame was stamped onto Crumb Cake cardstock using Baja Breeze ink, and the sentiment was stamped then punched out and placed on with dimensionals.  I also sponged some Baja Breeze ink onto the sentiment.

To make today's card I used the following:
Cardstock:  Baja Breeze #111353, Basic Gray #121044, Not Quite Navy #101722, Very Vanilla #101650
