Sympathy card

It's easy to make birthday cards, valentine cards, Christmas cards, note cards, etc... all the fun cards.  I find it more difficult to pull together designs for sympathy cards, but when I saw the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch 190, I knew it would work for that.  



What I used:
~Basic Grey Granola paper
~Perfect Paisley Cuttlebug folder  (just got it... I LOVE it!!)
~black chalking on edges
~little flower stamp under the sentiment
~Fiskars Cameo Ovations clear stamp
~grossgrain ribbon**

** to make a bow like this:  cut a short length of ribbon, cut a long length that will go across your card.  Tie the long piece in a very loose knot, slip the short length through the knot, tighten the knot and you have this nice, flat, simple bow.  I saw this on Youtube awhile back but cannot find it now to give credit... sorry!
