Sympathy Card

This card is for the Make It Monday Challenge.  I will edit this post tomorrow with the directions ~ too late tonight!
OK!  I am back to give you directions.  The card base is 4 1/4x5 1/2 white cardstock.  The panel is 4x3 1/2 patterned paper, from an OLD DCWV paper pad, the solid cardstock is 4x2 1/4.  A piece of dyed seam binding is tied in a bow at the seam.  The felt flowers are cream felt cut with My Favorite Things ROLLED ROSES Die-Namics dies.  You can see them here and here .  They make SUCH pretty flowers.  You will be seeing me use them, a LOT!  The large one has a pin I made from a corsage pin (WalMart) and 2 beads.  The 2 leaf sprigs tucked behind the flowers are cut with PTI Turning a New Leaf die, mounted on pop dots.  Finally a sympathy sentiment, Stampendous ~ Encouraging Words, here was stamped on the solid cardstock.
Dawn McVey, PTI ~ My Favorite Things, advice is classic, elegant images and cheerful colors, not drab, when making Sympathy cards.  I tried to show that in this card.
Thank you for looking at my blog!
