A Sympathy Combo Challenge

Hello and welcome back! Today's card is for the challenges at Freshly Made Sketches and TGIF

 Here's my card for the challenges:

I wanted to try one of the new In Colors on this card, so I pulled out the Tranquil Tide ink and cardstock. I used the large stamp from Flourishing Phrases to create the side panel, then added flowers cut from Emerald Envy and Calypso Coral with pearl accents. The sentiment was stamped and cut with the Stitched Shapes oval and backed with a scalloped Layering Oval. I even refrained from adding ribbon to this one, because I wanted to keep it really simple.

I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
