My Craft Spot Release Party - Day 2 - With Deepest Sympathy

Good morning yet again - and welcome to day 3 of the new release party at My Craft Spot! Today we are previewing the set called With Deepest Sympathy. Sympathy cards are usually some of the most difficult cards for me to make - but this set is filled with beautiful and thoughtful sentiments that make it a lot easier. Here is what I made using this new set:
I pulled out some My Mind's Eye Indie Chic paper for the background, then layered some Washi Tape from the same line on a piece of white cardstock. The flower silhouette is cut using my Cricut and Botanicals cartridge. 
I inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen on the white, and in Vintage Photo on the pattern paper. 
I stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of cardstock, rounded the corners and inked the edges,  then tucked it under the other piece. Used some Crinkle Ribbon from my Craft Spot in Caribbean, and some Twinery Twine in Mandarine (you can find those HERE and HERE) - and added a wooden button from Prima. Finished off with a bit of black bling next to the sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by today - I will see you again here tomorrow for the next set! I really love what I got to preview for tomorrow - can't wait to share it with you!!!
