I used Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday challenge #22 to help with the design of my card.  I also used the CR84FN35 color challenge (lavender, celery, gray) & Timeless Tuesday #129 (favorite flowers) for my card.  Here is what I created:
 "With Sympathy"supplies: 
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper: Bo Bunny (Back to Backs: Heather Dot), Cosmo Cricket (Upcycle: Relove) & Webster's Pages (Nature's Storybook 6x6 pad)
Stamps/Label Die: WPlus9 (Very Vintage Greetings, Label Layers Die 3)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: heliotrope, antique pewter, moss green) & Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black)
Lace trim: vintage craft supply
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Button: Doodlebug Designs
Twine: May Arts
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Scalloped Border Die: Papertrey Ink
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock.  Diecut a scalloped border from purple dotted paper, and adhere to the bottom of a green flourish paper block.  Adhere the entire block to the middle of the card, and then stamp the flowers at the top.  Adhere a strip of gray patterned paper to the left side, then cover the seam with purple lace.  Add a strip of green dotted ribbon slightly overlapping the lace trim.  Tie a bow and add a button around the middle with twine, and then adhere to the top of the ribbon strip.  Diecut the label from vintage cream cardstock, then stamp the border and sentiment to it.  Stamp the flower to cardstock twice, and cut out the necessary parts.  Layer together, and then adhere to the stamped label.  Accent with pearls to finish.

Be sure to check out what the other WPlus9 design team members have come up with tonight!  I am sure it will be a treat!  ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
