The Paper Players.....With Sympathy

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week on the The Paper Players Blog.
This week is a pretty color challenge:

Also submitting to the The Ribbon Carousel Blog challenge:
 Sympathy Cards.

I stamped the image from the Stampin Up "Serene Silhouettes" with black stazon directly onto some Baja Breeze card stock and then matted the image with basic black card stock.
I stamped the sentiment from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" with black stazon also.
I used my piercing template to pierce the oval around the sentiment. Love the look of that.

The base of the card is Basic Gray and then a layer of Basic black and the another layer of gray that was embossed with the Tulip Frame EF. 
I used some Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon to tie around this layer and tied a bow.
The main image piece is mounted to the base with some dimesionals.
I added some basic pearls to the flowers for my finishing touch.
Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by and
