May Your Memories Bring You Peace

I really wanted to participate in the challenge at Black Tie Friday's this week, a condolence card for the families in Newtown, CT.  I wanted something with some color, so I used the colors from The Play Date Cafe challenge, as well as the layout from CAS(E) this Sketch.
The colors I used are Regal Rose, Perfect Plum and More Mustard.  
I am in love with the flowers from Secret Garden and love the fact that they have coordinating Framelits!  For the mustard flower, I cut out the smallest layer and popped it up on a Dimensional.  I thought the rhinestones added a little bit of hope and happiness to the card, along with this color scheme and whimsical embossing folder.

Stamp Sets: Blessings from Heaven, Secret Garden
Cardstock: More Mustard, Perfect Plum, Regal Rose, Very Vanilla
Ink: More Mustard, Perfect Plum, Regal Rose
Tools: Secret Garden Framelits, Decorative Label Punch, Elegant Lines Embossing Folder
Accessories: Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Dimensionals
