Sympathy Card

Here is a card I made for a swap.  I love these colors, but I couldn't decide on a design.
Here are the rest of the cards, most of them using my new design, with the taffeta ribbon instead of the poly ribbon.  I really like the offset look of the design.

Here's a closer view of the new design.

As you can see, I couldn't make up my mind which side to place my image on!  I also couldn't decide whether to mat the image with pink or purple, lol.  I also tried Blushing Bride as a base, but thought it was too washed out to use with the deep purple of Concord Crush.  Sometimes everything comes together so easily, other times it seems to take me forever to make up my mind.  :)

Recipe:

Stamps:  Thoughts and Prayers
Paper:  Lap of Luxury DSP, Concord Crush, Pretty in Pink, Blushing Bride (on some cards), Very Vanilla
Ink:  Concord Crush, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories:  Pretty in Pink 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon or Concord Crush Poly Ribbon
