Color Dare 210 - Sympathy Card

I have a card buffet coming up soon and thought this week's Color Dare challenge colors would make for a nice sympathy card option.  I started off with cutting the pocket card from the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge on page 37 at 5.25" so it would be the right width for a standard card.  You'll need to trim .25" off the bottom and use the corner rounder on the bottom edges.  Then cut a piece of Desert Sand paper at 4" x 5.25" and round the edges.  Use a pencil to lightly trace the flower and leave outlines onto the Desert Sand paper; use sponge daubers to apply Fern ink to the leaves and Eggplant ink to the flowers.  Mount the Colonial White pocket card on top of the sponged Desert Sand paper and stamp the title with Peacock ink.  Then to round out the card, knot a piece of our new twine with some Peacock colored floss.
