With Sympathy

With the storms that rolled through earlier, I decided it was probably a good idea to shut down the computer.  We had some very wicked lightning strikes and our power usually goes out.  It didn't so I used the time offline to work on my card for the Freshly Made Sketches.  I decided to do a bit of paper piecing.

The image from Bloom with Hope was stamped on Whisper White card stock using Mossy Meadow ink.  Then, I stamped the image onto a piece of paper from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack.  I fussy cut around the blossoms and attached them over the image stamped on the white card stock.  It's an easy way to give a different look to your design.
