Simple Sympathy

I don't think that all sympathy cards need to be black, white or beige. Yes, those colors can look great but IMO other colors can look nice too.
Materials needed:
Birds of a Feather patterned paper (#126899) 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
Wild Wasabi card stock 3 x 4"
White Card stock 2 x 3" 
So Saffron card stock scrap
Simply Sketched stamp set (hostess #129672)
Scallop Dot Border punch (retired)
3/16" Corner punch
Large Oval punch (#119855)
5/8" Whisper White Satin ribbon (#114616)
Old Olive ink

1. Punch the Scallop Dot border on one long side of the Wild Wasabi card stock.
2. Stamp the stem image on to white card stock with Old Olive ink. Use a round punch to round the corners. Adhere the white card stock to the center of the Wild Wasabi card stock.
3. Adhere this to the center left of the patterned paper.
4. Cut a piece of ribbon about 7" long. Apply adhesive to the back and place it on the right side of the patterned paper. Wrap the ends around to the back.
5. Stamp the greeting in the Simply sketched stamp set on to a piece of So Saffron card stock. Use the large oval punch to punch it out. Adhere this to the top right of the card front overlapping the ribbon and a bit of the embellishment.
6. Adhere the card front to a card base and place a note of sympathy inside the card. People feel more like you care when you actually write a message inside of just stamping a nice saying inside.
