Sharing in your Sorrow

Today I'm sharing a sympathy card I created using some of the Layering Stamps from Hampton Art.
I masked off the bottom of my front panel with a torn piece of cardstock before stamping my script background stamp. Not sure if you've noticed, but seems I can't stop distressing my edges of late. It gives the panel a softer look and adds a bit more texture and interest to the card front.
Supplies and Tools:
Layer Flower Happy Stamp Set (Hampton Art), Thoughts and Prayers (Stampin' Up), Walnut Stain/Mowed Lawn/Salty Ocean/Gr. Espresso Distress Ink, Ribbon, Square Punch, Ribbon, Script Background Stamp (Stampin' Up)

P.S. This would be a great fit for the new Anything Goes challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon if you'd like to play along.
