Sentimental Sundays Sympathy / Thinking of You Challenge

Good morning all! Time for a new challenge at Sentimental Sundays! This week we are making Sympathy/Thinking of You cards. Be sure to stop over at the main blog to see what the rest of the DT has created.

For my card this week I used a stamp from Digi Doodle Shop called Cherry Blossoms.

I made a circle easel card this time. You can find the flower tutorial here. The flatback pearls are from Pizzazz Aplenty. If you haven't visited this store, they have tons of awesome embellishments at very good prices.
