So Sorry

Lately I seem to be making and needing a lot of sympathy cards.  For this one I used the sketch at STAMPlorations

This started out to be a one layer card, until I got a smudge of ink where it didn't belong and I couldn't creatively cover it any other way.  I used a reverse mask for the oval, sponging Tim Holtz Scattered Straw Distress ink, then stamped the weathered background with TH Brushed Corduroy.  Stamped the flowers from Eclectic Florals with Memento Luxe Rhubarb Stalk and the stems and sentiment with Memento Olive Grove. Added some brown Wink of Stella to the flower centers. Die cut the same oval from some woodgrain cardstock, it didn't line up quite right, so die cut the dark brown oval frame to fit inside the  woodgrain oval.

Thanks for taking a look!
