Thoughts & Prayers - PPA 170!

Hi there! 
I was warned this might happen.......I have got the challenge bug! 
Last week I participated in my first challenge and this week, I am participating in two!  Yohoo!
I thought I would try my hand at a colour challenge - Pals Paper Arts, have a terrific one!  Beautiful fall colours......Midnight Muse, Crushed Curry and Early Expresso!  Yummie indeed!  Matching these colours all in one card took me out of my comfort zone a little bit, but boy am I happy the Pals did, after all, isn't that what a challenge is all about!
So about my card, one of my regular card class friends (Hi Marsha!) asked if we could make a sympathy card and I thought these colours would be a good fit.  It is always good to have some sympathy cards on hand in your stash. 
The Thoughts & Prayers stamp set was up for the challenge and it is such a great one to have in your collection.  I just love the verses for inside, because I never quite know what to say at a time like that.  This set is great for a get well card too.
And so, here is my card.........
The supplies I used are....
Early Espresso Cardstock and Ink
Very Vanilla Cardstock
Midnight Muse Cardstock
Daffodil Delight Cardstock (replacing Crushed Curry)
Designer Series Paper (can't recall the name, but I know it is retired)
Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set
Decorative Label Punch
Boho Blossoms Punch
Pearl Basic Jewels
I hope my card inspires you!  Go ahead a pop on over to Pals Paper Arts and see all of their wonderful talent in action!
Happy Stampin'
3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Midnight Muse
