CAS sympathy card

When I go "clean and simple" I don't mess around! :)
I made a super simple card today. The branch and flowers are from Serenade cart, cut at 2 1/4".  I just used the top layer of the flower petals and cupped them a little with my stylus.

The stamp is from Scrappy Mom's Stamps. The card is a white A2 card base, with a black mat and then an embossed white layer measuring 4" x 5 1/4".

I dotted the centers of the little flowers with some liquid pearls. For the embossing, I used a "Studio by Sculpey texture maker" called Spring Morning. It's designed to be used with clay, but I ran it through my embosser with some fun foam mats.

The inside sentiment is also by Scrappy Mom's Stamps.

Challenge : 
There is also a Queen of my Craftroom DT challenge to make a card using only black and white with just a small touch of pink.

This is a simple card but it is beautiful! The little flowers on the branch says to me, that something lovely can bloom from a cold season. Does that make sense? Hugs, Pam at
