Sympathy card made using the Bloom Lite cartridge.

 Hello, friends!!

Today's card is made using the Bloom lite Cricut cartridge. This cut is yet another one I did not notice until I made this card. I just love finding hidden treasures like this branch of flowers! Anyway, I thought that if I made the flowers white it would make it more sympathy card appropriate.

The branch with the flowers are cut at 4".
I used little pearls from Close To My Heart to add a little bit of elegance to the flowers.
The ribbon is from SU! as is the patterned paper.
The stamp is from Close To my Heart.
 Thanks for dropping by today!

Great card! I love the way you cut the leaves out of papers with text. Adds so much to the design and the white flower look perfect.
Thanks for sharing and inspiring! :)

This is lovely, Melanie. I'm always looking out for ideas for sympathy cards. Like many of us, I find sympathy cards the most difficult to make. Thanks for the idea!

i love the card. My mom is almost 86 (nest month) and at that age, a lot of her friends are passing away. Since i am making cards, it seems i have a lot of sympathy cards to make, and never keep up. Thanks for sharing this lovely one. i haven't used my cricut enough to find the hidden treasures, but know i want the Bloom Lite cartridge.

I think you're right about the flowers. I love the muted tones you chose. The ribbon is a lovely contrast.

Great card and the way you used white for the flowers definitely helps with the theme. Its always difficult isn't it to be appropriate at such difficult times. TFS

Very pretty, I like how the flower is as big as the card and the ribbon brings all the colors together and its not to much and your right to use the white flower. Thanks for all you do and share, God bless you and yours.
