Springtime Vintage Sympathy

Today's post is a quick one. Mostly because it's a quick and easy card to make!

Awhile back, I was asked to make some Sympathy, or Thinking of You type cards.
One of the very easiest ones I made is what I'm sharing with you today.

It uses 1 stamp, 2 colors of cardstock, 1 ink pad, a strip of designer paper, and some ribbon. Oh, and a panel of dry embossed (Big Shot) polka dots, and 3 punches. :)

Ha that I type it all out it looks like a lot, doesn't it?  Well, when you see the card you'll understand just how easy it really is. :)

I do need to give you one warning, however. The weather here is SUPER-gray and dark, so I just couldn't manage to get a good picture taken. Even after playing with it a bit, it still looks funny to me.

I love the soft muted colors of the designer's the new one in the Occasions Mini, called Springtime Vintage. I also like that this layout could be used for many fact, I may just get started on making a bunch! lol

Well, what do you think?
