Peachy Keen Challenge 13-34

Hello everyone and welcome!
It's that time of the week again...time for another Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge.  This week our challenge is to create one of those cards that we don't look forward to making, but one that we unfortunately need to have on hand.  Our challenge this week is to create a Sympathy Card.  Here are the guidelines for the challenge:
Create a card using a sympathy theme.
We'll be awarding "TOP PEACH" to the player who uses their Peachy Keen Stamps this week and  our two runner ups will receive a spiffy badge to display on their blog!
- Design must be new
- Link up by 8/28 - 11:59 pm EST

And, here is my card.....
* I started with a dark brown 4.5 X 4.5 cardbase.
* For my next layer, I used a pretty teal blue, distressed the edges and inked them up with Versamark ink in Vintage Sepia.
* The top layer is cut of Kraft paper and stamped with the Peachy Keen Background Stamp Copper Ceiling Tile (PK-189). I also distressed and inked up the edges of this layer.
* Next, I used my sewing machine to add a bit of stitching around the layers.

* I added some pretty, dark brown velvet ribbon to the bottom portion of my card.
* The flower is from the Silhouette Online Store and is cut from Kraft paper.  I added some coarse glitter for a bit of sparkle and a pretty brad in the center. I wish you could see the sparkle better in this photo, but I just could not get a good shot.
* The sentiment is from the PK-1334 Stamp Set.

*In this photo, you can see the dimension in the flower -still can't see the sparkle :(

Okay, so that's my card for this week's challenge!  Be sure to stop by the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog and see the beautiful Sympathy cards created by our Design Team.  I hope you will join in our challenge this week and I look forward to seeing what you create!

Until next time,
