Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are something we all need, but they are very hard to make.  I never know how to get started.  For this one I used Spellbinders to cut the layers, then embossed them.  I stamped the middle layer with a flower from Peachy Keen SOTM and added a trail of pearls.  The sentiment from My Craft Spot is stamped and embossed

 The inside sentiment is computer generated.
I am entering this in the following challenges:

Peacy Keen - Sympathy
Paper Playtime-Use Pearls
CardzTV-Color Pop
CraftinDesert Diva's-Anything Gos
An Inky Situation-Scallops
