Comfort, Strength and Peace

Good morning!  Today's card is for the second Waltzing Mouse sketch challenge.  I am waiting until the next release to put my BIG order in :)  I love Claire's Spellbinder friendly stamps that match up with the Labels dies :)  Oh, here's some more of that gorgeous seam binding ribbon :)
The colours were inspired by this A Creative Mint photo...a little pop of red twine just like that single red button, so sweet :)  I needed some more sympathy cards...I have run out after taking my cards into work to sell to my colleagues.  I'm replenishing baby cards too :)  Okay....two more weeks to go!!  Have a lovely day :)

What's in it?
Stamps: Verve Forever in our Hearts
Ink: versafine onyx
Paper: PTI kraft, cream, ocean tide; SU ballet blue, October afternoon dp
Accessories: oval nestabilities, SU scallop border & boho flowers punches, Grandpa's vintage buttons, twine, stitching, seam binding ribbon,
