In addition to some lovely Ribbon Carousel 1.5" White Net Ribbon underneath the sentiment panel, I used two different Stampin' Up! sets to make this Sympathy card. The sentiment is from Loving Thoughts and the floral stamp is from Elements of Style. The half stamping part of the challenge is to have only 1/2 of your image on the card, basically having it cut off on the edge. I wanted to keep it black and white so I didn't color in the flowers (not that I would have had any desire to do so anyway) and I think that this color scheme really adds to the elegance. Besides the silver pearls, the only other embellishment is the paper piercing in the corner, made with my Stampin' Up! paper piercing Mat Pack.

We'd love for you to join us this week! Here are the details:

- Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like Splitcoast Stampers, (use the keyword RCC57) with a direct link back to THIS post. Including the challenge graphic isn't a requirement, but sure is appreciated! (A participant of our very first challenge didn't link back or mention our challenge and couldn't be named Top Spool, so don't let that happen to you!)
- Link up your creation using the Inlinkz button at the bottom of this post. Your image may take a little while to pop up, but don't worry, it will appear shortly.
