With Sympathy

It's been a rainy day here in Iowa and what better way to pass the day than to get back in the swing of joining in on some challenges.  Due to an unexpected health issue, I've not been in my craft room much other than to fulfill design team obligations.  Today found me seated at my craft table to combine the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the Just Add Ink challenge.  I think they went well together.

As you can see, I used a white card base.  On the left I added a strip of Blackberry Bliss.  And, before you ask, yes, it is Blackberry Bliss and not black.  :-)  The rose and small flower are cut from Rich Razzleberry using the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.  The ferns are cut from Tip Top Taupe using the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.  To the center of the flowers I added Pearl Basic Jewels.  The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set and stamped using Blackberry Bliss ink.


The sketch I used is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
