Beautiful Sympathy Card

Hello stampers...
Today's card features a new stamp set called "Wild About Flowers."  The sentiments are from one of my favorite sets called "Thoughts and Prayers."  Luckily that set didn't retire and is still available.
I found this beautiful layout on www.dostampingwithdawn.com   I made the card front exactly like Dawn did, only using a different sentiment and the new Washi Label punch.  I had no idea how Dawn had decorated the inside, so I just added an additional panel inside to mimic the card front.  This layout could easily be used for many occasions by changing the sentiments.
 
The card base is a normal A2 sized card in Sahara Sand.  The three panels on front measure 1-5/8" x 3-7/8" in Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand and Soft Sky.  The flower images were stamped using Chocolate Chip ink.  The panels were then adhered to a piece of white cardstock measuring
4" x 5-1/4".   I wrapped linen thread around it and tied in a bow, securing with a glue dot underneath. The sentiment on front was popped with dimensionals.   The inside liner measures 4" x 5-1/4" and the Soft Sky panel measures the same as the front panels.
 
Hope you find some time for yourself to be creative today!
