White on White Sympathy...

White on White is always elegant in my mind - and always appropriate for a sympathy card.  I ran the base card thru my Cuttlebug with a flowered embossing folder.  The image from Robyn's Fetish was printed out three times so I could sculpt the petals and give the card dimension.  I used a die cut for the smaller flowers on top.  The corners were rounded, an oval punch for the sentiment and a double slot punch over the stems allowed me to "tie" the stems together with my ribbon.  The final step was to elevate the image panel on foam tape on to the base card.

This card has been created for inspiration for the AUD SENTIMENTS Challenge #85 - (Thinking of You &/or Sympathy).  We are now mid challenge so you have another week to get your creative effort entered!  I so encourage you to go check out what the design team has put together for you HERE and to find the rules and closing date of the challenge.
