And it's back!!

Blogger is back! Did you all have withdrawals when Blogger went down like I did? No posts in Google Reader, no commenting on posts and no posting of my own!

Today I have one of those cards that we wish we don't have to make, but unfortunately sometimes do. A sympathy card.

I have used last weeks sketch from A La Card Monkey. Last weeks, as the challenge closed while Blogger was down, so I couldn't post my card. Luckily for me Terry over at A La Card Monkey kindly posted my pic on their site for me. Thanks Terry! Here is the sketch:

The Challenge this week was to follow the sketch and use some flowers on your card. I have used Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White and Crumb Cake as my colour palette. I love the Manhattan Flower embossing folder, but haven't had a chance to give it much use, so I pulled it out for this challenge.

I also used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder for the background and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments. I have finished it off with a double bow using Seam Binding and some green flowers. Here is a close up of the ribbon/flower detail:
I wanted to keep the inside pretty simple as I wanted to leave a fair bit of room to write. I have stamped one of the flowers from Fifth Avenue Floral to match the Manhattan Embossing Folder.
