Sketch Frenzy Friday-A Sympathy Card

Hi Stampers!

Where has this last week gone?  It's Friday again, and I feel like time is flying too fast!!  It's also time for a new sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday.  This week our sketch was created by Robbie:
 As usual, Robbie has done an awesome job and created a great sketch for us.  Here is my card:
My dear friend Mary lost her oldest brother last week, so I decided to make her a sympathy card.  I used some colors that I hadn't used in a LONG time--Perfect Plum and Old Olive.  With all the In Colors and other colors that I like to use, I sometimes neglect others including my favorites.  I am a lover of all things purple, so I decided to use a purple color for my card. 
  • Colors:  Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Summer Starfruit
  • Stamps:  Bloomin' Marvelous (FREE during SAB with a $50 purchase), Loving Thoughts, Blessings from Heaven
  • Accessories:  Perfect Polka Dots TIEF, 1-1/4" square punch, Old Olive 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon, Owl Builder Punch, 5/8" Flower Trim
So, you're asking, "What did she use the two punches for?"  I used the square punch for the flagged ends of the sentiment banner, and the smallest circle on the Owl Builder punch for the ticket punch corners on the Very Vanilla layer.  Here's what I did on the inside of the card:
I left some space so that I can add a personal note to Mary.

The colors are so soft and match so well with the sentiment. Sorry for your friends loss btw. Great tip about using the Owl Punch for the ticket edge, it looks great.
