Deepest Sympathy Flower B&W

Hello, everyone.  I'm back today with a third sympathy card, another one for my parents' stash.  I used two floral images from Crafty Secrets, from their Flower Garden set; the sympathy sentiment is a clear stamp from Hero Arts from their Everyday Sayings set.  

I followed this sketch at Sketch Saturday:

Here are the stamps used (links to purchase are above):  

Here are the other supplies used:
  • Ribbon:  May Arts
  • Cardstock:  Stampin' Up, Staples
  • Embossing folder:  Sorry I don't have the name; I was given some embossed panels
  • Vellum, gems:  Dollar store
I would like to enter the following challenges:
A Blog Named Hero One and Four (one Hero Arts stamp, four gems) UE C5
Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage January Linky Party 4E #4
One Sweet Challenge Black and White 1E
Sketch Saturday Sketch (see above) 3E #1
Winter Wonderland Monochrome 3E #3

Thank you for looking at my card - I enjoy reading your comments.  Wishing you a joyful day!

So great with the black on white and white on black images. Did you use pigment ink?
I find,with some stamps, you almost need pigment to get such a nice image.
Only 5 challenges? Must have been bedtime for you!
Wonderful card. Your parents will love this one.
Hugs, Debi
