Loonie Stamper Challenge #16 - with sympathy

Another Loonie Stamper Challenge set by Regan this week. Wow, look at these colors!! Are they great or what??!!
If you know me, you will know that I have trouble using more than one or two colors in a card. So, when I see 4 colors...I pale a bit, panic for a minute...but then I figure that it is a challenge, right??!! So I jumped in with both feet! I did, however, keep it simple!
The card is pretty straight foward. My friend has requested a few sympathy cards so I figured this might be a good opportunity to create one.
And look ... while I was playing around trying to come up with a card, I had started with some different elements. Well, I liked them so much I decided to make a second card with them and it also fits the challenge colors!! And the first time using my Spiral Bouquet which I just bought in September!!
You gotta go see the Loonie Girls' work: Jewels, Dee, Char, Wendy, Maria
Supplies: Stamps - Simple Little Things, Spiral Bouquet, Borders & Corners {Circles}, Flower Garden (Papertrey Ink); Paper - Kraft, Spring Moss (Papertrey Ink), Old Olive, Blue Bayou (Stampin' Up! -- I don't have the newest PTI colors yet); Ink - Old Olive, Blue Bayou (Stampin' Up!); Other - Blue Bayou ribbon (Stampin' Up!), Scallop scissors (Provo Craft), flowers (Michael's), 1 1/4" circle punch (Stampin' Up!).
