Mary will announce a winner on April 9 on her Blog. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! The Special this month is the Morning Glory stamp – 50% off!

For my sympathy card, I die cut the 2 turquoise panels, put the larger one into my Misti & stamped the Flower Corner & Leaf. Just a little white pencil was added in areas then I lined up the smaller turquoise panel & stamped the bottom part only of the same Flower Corner & also the Tiny Flower .  I added a narrow black mat under the horizontal panel & a portion of the Daisy Border die. A small black bow & a few rhinestones finished it. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

    Wow, turquoise and black are always a dynamic duo!! Great card, Julie.

  3. I rarely stamp on anything other than white/cream or kraft. The soft white flowers on the turquoise make for a beautiful sympathy card, especially with the black daisy border.

  4. What a beautiful card! I really struggle with sympathy cards – wanting to be respectful but not depressing – this is the perfect touch!

  20. Such a pretty card! I seldom use corner stamps, will have to start!
