Dynamic Duos......Heartfelt Sympathy

Happy Saturday Peeps!!

It is time for another new color challenge on the Dynamic Duos Blog
It is monochromatic week:

I love this combo, I decided to make a sympathy card with the colors, 
I hate when I need one but it is nice to have on hand when the occasion rises.

Both the flower stamp and the Sentiment on here are from retired sets.
 The flower stamp is from Happy Harmony and the sentiment comes form the Close as a Memory stamp set.
The flowers are stamped with Crumb Cake ink onto Very Vanilla card stock and the sentiment is stamped with Soft Suede ink. 

The base is Crumb Cake and then the next layer is Soft Suede and then more Crumb Cake that is embossed with the dots EF.
The DSP across the bottom is from the new Print Poetry paper stack. I added a strip of Soft Suede that I scalloped punched. I then added some Naturals Trim Ribbon and tied a bow. I just have to pause here for a minute and tell you how nice this ribbon is, it is so pretty, ties up really nice and has the look that reminds me of burlap, you really need some of this ribbon.
I finished the card off with some small gold pearls.
Be sure and hop on over to the Dynamic Duos Blog to see what the rest of the design team did with these colors.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and

Absolutely beautiful card Vicki - perfect in every way! Thanks for the description of the ribbon btw, I was wondering if I should get this and thought it might be too thick for bows (I do like me some bows!) but you're right - it looks lovely!
