Mixing the Old with the New

It seems I am always in need of sympathy cards. I love the way this one turned out. I actually have made it a goal to use up some of my scraps that are laying around my workroom, some in bags, some just laying out. I had already embossed the edge of this card and trimmed a scrap of dsp from the retired in-color paper stack (Blushing Bride). The flowers are from the spring catalog. I really didn't think I needed another flower stamp set, but this one comes with a coordinating set of framelits. Since I often cut out my flowers, I decided this would be a real benefit for me.  Two of the flowers are stamped with Riding Hood Red classic ink on Blush Blossom card stock while the other one is stamped with Blush Blossom classic ink on Whisper White. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the enters of two of the flowers and covered the Blush Blossom ink with Crystal Effects. I love the way this card turned out.
