Beautiful Sympathy ~ CCMC568, TGIFC218, PP448

Hi there stampers!  Today's card is for Create With Connie and Mary Case the Catalog challenge #568.  I used a beautiful new set called Beautiful Friendship.  I loved the Pinewood Planks element on the original card and I knew I wanted to use that in my card.  I also kept with the floral theme and pink, except I added yellow so I could play along with the Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  I used the diagonal elements of Ribbon, Yellow, and Wood.  I know I've mentioned before how much I love a tic-tac-toe challenge and always try to play along when I can.  
I also incorporated TGIF Challenges sympathy challenge. I used Well Said with the coordinating Well Written dies to comply with the sympathy challenge.  I cut out the "sympathy" three times.... in  Rococo Rose, Crumb Cake, and Daffodil Delight.  I was trying to figure out which color would work best on the card.  After I decided on the Rococo Rose, I then decided to just layer all the words together to "build up" the sympathy die cut for added texture.

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Beautiful Friendship, Well said
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Rococo Rose, Soft Sea Foam, Crumb Cake
Paper: White, Daffodil Delight, Rococo Rose
Accessories: Pinewood Plank EF, Scallop Linen Ribbon, Well Written Die

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
