Sponged Sympathy Card

Sometimes it is the simple cards without a lot of layers that really stand out.  By sponging my ink inside a cut framelit you are drawn to the message which is the most important part of the card.
To get the sponging onto my Whisper White Card I used a piece of the thick white backing that comes with your Designer Series Paper, and cut out a large Window Frames Framelit.  I then took a Stamping Sponge and sponged Baja Breeze ink into the opening.  Next I stamped my sentiment and flowers into this opening using Early Espresso ink.  The only other embellishment I added to the card was the Paper Piercing around the window, which unfortunately you can't see in the picture. 
When I stamped my flowers, I just placed my cut out framelit down again so none of the Early Espresso ink would go out of the design and onto my Whisper White Card Stock. 
The following were used:
Card Stock:  Whisper White #100730
Ink:  Baja Breeze #126960, Early Espresso #126974
Stamp Set:  Love and Sympathy #122795 w or #122797 c
Tools:  Big Shot #113439, Windows Frames Collection #129021, Festive Paper-Piercing Pack #127857 (both from the holiday catalog), Stamping Sponges #101610
