With Sympathy

My husband told me the other day he needed a sympathy card to give to someone at work. He had to remind me again about an hour ago (it's about 11:15 p.m. right now!). Again, I'm rushing to get something done instead of having some on hand. I really need to get going on these all occasions cards!
I just picked up this K & Company mat pack at AC Moore yesterday. I flipped through it and saw this wonderful dp that matched Blue Bayou perfectly. So that's where I started. I knew I wanted something simple and had seen this done with the cuttlebug and Scor-pal. I used PTI's new Vintage Cream cardstock and matted it on creamy caramel after I stamped it with Sanded background stamp in close to cocoa. It's hard to see the Sanded, but it's there and looks better IRL than just the plain background. I've also decided that I want to use more Prima flowers on my cards. I've been looking at the cards that Cindy Haefner has been creating on her new blog and decided that I like them. So here they are! I used these larger brown brads from American Crafts. The sentiment is stamped in blue bayou. I also rounded the edges of the card and layers. I like that look! I hope DH likes it....he's sleeping now and won't see it until tomorrow morning! Thanks for stopping by and please scroll down to see the 4th of July post I did earlier today!

Very pretty! I think K&Co makes some of the nicest papers! The family will feel encouraged by this card, I am sure.
