I find sympathy cards to be challenging to create.  We want them to be tasteful and not overly done.  That is often a hard balance to create.  

To create this card, I scored the white cardstock at 1 1/4 ad 2 3/4.  I used post-it notes to mask off the area; then stamped the flowers.  The scallop border was cut with the die and adhered.  Pearl pen dots were added as simple accents.  I added one more score line across the top of the sentiment panel t balance the scallop border.  Then it was mounted onto blue cardstock.

Great job Carol!  Love the use of the stamp set and the scallop edges!  This card is perfect for someone who just lost a loved one.
