One Layer Sympathy

I was inspired by my friend Avril to create a one-layer card.  I decided to make a CAS sympathy card.

I started by stamping a solid rectangle stamp in pink.  Then I stamped the flowers and sentiment in black.   Lastly I embellished with pink gems.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamps:   Flower, sentiment (Studio G), rectangle (Rubber Stampede)
  • Ink:  Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid, Versafine Onyx Black
  • White Card Base:  Domtar
  • Gems:  Dollarama
