With Sympathy


The holiday weekend left me with some extra time to stamp in between doing lots of laundry on Monday.  I can't complain about the laundry though as 9 times out 10 my dear hubby takes care of it.  So anyways, back to the subject at hand.  I saw the inspiration photo for the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge and I wanted to get the gorgeous bloom set out again.  I mimicked the plate background with the background stamping and then pulled out the blues from the piano.  Another one layer card ready to go...
