Pink & Sympathy

I have to 2 cards to share with you today.

The first one is for my daughter's 13th birthday this Saturday. I used the Jammybella stamp (same as on her invitations). I cuttlebugged 2 layers, one with "Spots & Dots", the other with "Happy Birthday". Then I colored a flower from Stampin Up!s On Board Blossoms & Basics with a dauber dipped into Pink Passion. After it dried I punched a hole in the center with the Crop-a-dile, tied a knot in the center of the ribbon and pulled both ends thru the hole.

This next one is for Aunt Brenda. She lost her father on Sunday, her husband on Monday. The only stamps used were from Flourishes new set, "Flourished Words". The paper is Basic Grey "Infuse" which I also purchased from Flourishes. I used 2 sheets of it, trimming around the flowers of one and adhering it on top of the other. The ribbon is chocolate chip satin ribbon from Stampin Up!
