Hey there! Today, I'm sharing a card inspired by Melissa Phillips photo challenge. I really liked the pink and green color combination along with the clean white elements. I'm off to some appointments, so not too chatty this morning!

I hope you all enjoy and as always, thanks so very much for stopping by. Have a great Tuesday.

(4) Add ribbon treatment.
(5) Die cut tag, stamp sentiment, and tie around ribbon.
(6) Stamp flowers and leaves and cut out.
(7) Color, add rhinestones, and glitter, then pop off card front.

This card is so pretty! I've never seen a Sympathy card with such beautiful colors; we tend to think of Sympathy cards as having to be somber colors. But this would be a great encouragement and cheer-sender to the one in need of sympathy!
