RHSSC 35 - With Sympathy

It's Sunday and that means it's time for another Red Hot Stamper's sketch challenge.  I must say this challenge threw me a little! lol  I happened to see Stamping 411's Color Inspiration #170 post and decided to use their colors.  Then I needed to figure out what stamp set to use.  Well, I needed something big to cover the open side.  Ok, I got that part figured out, but then what to do for ribbon???  I didn't have any that was skinny enough to look good on what I had already done.  That's when I came up with the idea to twist the seam binding ribbon to make it smaller.  Voila!  I managed to come up with this pretty card.  I loved the soft colors and thought I would make it a sympathy for a fellow demonstrator who just lost a loved one.  

If you're in a crafty mood why not give our challenge a try.  You can head  here to see a few other samples too.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
