Sympathy

This week the #38  Less is More challenge is polka dots. Well, I love polk dots and wanted to do their challenge. I am using the Stampin'Up! ornament punch trimmed at the bottom to make a flower pot. I added a Stampendous vine/sentiment, and did some scoring and the card is all finished. The vine was left uncolored so as to be more delicate. The burnt orange pot is what I chose because of the Fall season.   Anyway, my card was very quick to make and may be the quickest  I've ever made.

Edited: Sentiment was looking blue so I tweaked the photo until it looked like the brown it is

Great card. Must remember to use that ornament punch as a vase. Lovely touch with the scoring :)

It's a great idea to use the ornament as a vase... I've done that a few times.
How strange that the script appears blue!
Charming card Benzi!
Thanks so much

Beautifully designed card Brenda... I find sympathy cards one of the most difficult, but you've done a great job here!
