BBTB2 - Sympathy Card

Happy Monday!!!

Welcome to another challenge over at BBTB2!

Bitten by the Bug 2

For this week's challenge, Sharon has chosen to
showcase Sympathy cards.
  So be sure to check out the DT's projects!

Here is my card:

I used the Serenade cartridge for this lovely flower,
and Elegant Edges for the mat cut.

I ran the mat through the Birds and Swirls embossing folder
in my Cuttlebug.

My pattern paper was from my stash, I don't know where it's from
other than my good crafty friend Michelle who sent it to me.

My silk ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

The sentiment is from Craftin' Desert Divas "Simply Said" set.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2 for this week's challenge!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
