Sympathy Card Using CTMH Blossom Paper, Cricut Artiste and Cricut Art Philosophy cartridges

Hello friends.  It is time for another DS4J New Release.  We have some gorgeous new creations for you.  We also have a new challenge; which will last till the end of April; so buy some of the new release digi stamps and enter our Sketch challenge for a chance to win $10 in free digis from the DS4J store.  There is still a chance to win with other digis; but the grand prize is limited to DS4J digis.  

I have chosen to create a Sympathy card for a childhood friend of mine; using DS4J Fantasy Tulips.  Aren't they gorgeous! I made three sets of the flowers for my card; which I think turned out pretty good.  I am in love with our new CTMH Blossom paper.  I can't get enough of these orange and green colors together.  There are several other patterned pages with this set; but I seem to be stuck on using these two patterns.  I have to buy more; because I used all of those sheets already. LOL!

I also used some of my ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I joined their a ribbon club; so I receive a new package of ribbon each month.  I don't think you can ever have enough ribbon. LOL!
