Sympathy Card

I need a sympathy card today. So I pulled out my June Counterfeit Kit - It's the Little Things.  I started by looking through the 6x6 paper pad I included in my kit to get some inspiration.

I pulled out four different sheets that I thought I might use on the card -

pink variegated paper, multi colored swatch paper, dark blue with light blue plus signs and a white with gold embossed pattern. After cutting into a couple of them I decided I would use the pink variegated paper for my card. I used Bazzill Vanilla cardstock for my base and cut a smaller panel for the embellishment.

I added a few of the flowers from the ephemera pack that I included in my kit. Since there was gold in the flowers I pulled out a scrap of gold cardstock and the leaf dies to cut a couple of leaf sets for the front of my card.
All of the edges are inked with gathered twigs and the sentiment is black soot.  I stamped a few of the flowers onto the envelope and embossed with gold embossing powder.

For the inside of the card I used a white mat to write on - just because it's easier to read, then added a strip of the pattern paper down the side, a couple of gemz and another flower piece to the bottom of the card.
