Sympathy Cards

I had a request from a friend for some sympathy cards so I pulled out the Papertrey Ink Botanical Silhouettes set and got to work. I started with a piece of PTI Rustic Cream cardstock that I stamped with a Glitz Distressing text stamp using Latte ink from A Muse Studio. Next I stamped the flower stems with SU River Rock and the flowers with Cameo Coral. The sentiment is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. Finally I sponged Walnut Stain Distress Ink around the edges of the panel before adding some hand-dyed seam binding and button. The seam binding was dyed with Tea Rose Distress Ink and a drop or two of Fired Brick Distress Ink.
 I was so pleased with how the first card turned out that I made a second card with the same supplies with the exception of the flower stamp (also from the Botanical Silhouette set).
 Thanks so much for stopping. I hope you're having a wonderful week. Happy Stamping!
