Sympathy in Lavendar

Hello!  It's my turn to host the challenge at My Sheri Crafts. I figured there would be plenty of Halloween or Fall challenges this week so I went in a totally different direction.  I chose the theme "A Little Comfort" - make a Sympathy or Thinking of You card. This is one type of card I don't keep on hand and always seem to scramble to make when I need one.  This one, however, came together pretty well and is made all from scraps.
 The sentiment stamp is from "My Sentiments Exactly" and is a inside and out set.  I added a little bling with my I-Rock and a ribbon from Wal-Mart.
 I inked the inside by masking the center with a scalloped oval cut and applied the ink directly to somewhat mimic the purple paper used on the outside. 
Just a simple card, but I'm pleased with the results.  

I hope you will join in with us this week, but first be sure to stop by My Sheri Crafts and see the beautiful creations from the rest of the team!

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you enjoyed the visit!
