Inspired Stamps Card & The Winner is....

Hello and welcome here. What came first, the winner or the card?:)...I decided to show you my card first. This week at Inspired Stamps it was DT choice. I needed a Sympathy card, and this is what I came up with, breaking my new Martha Stewart punch in the process, lol.

Card Size: 5" x 5"
Aren't ya proud of me, lol...I used a size other than 4.25" x 5.5". If you're like me, I find it difficult to use a sentiment as my focal point...but I love the challenge. It's a fine balance of not adding too many embellishments to make up for the fact there is no image.

Card Inside:

I wanted something soft for the inside too, I thought a single flower would be nice.

Here's a close-up of the decorative panel. I used a sparkly ribbon underneath, but it didn't seem to photograph well, but it adds a nice soft touch. I used foam squares to make it stand up off the card.
