With Sincere Sympathy, Sue Wilson Background Die and Frantic Stamper Precision Rose Heart Die

I have this pretty Sympathy card to share that follows yesterday's fun Sketch Challenge #SC526, the and (Pink, White, Melon Mambo) Color Challenge #CC516 at SCS
My Background was created with the Scandinavian Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Die. I twice die-cut that and layered it for added depth and color to peek through underneath. The Rose Heart cut is so pretty with its positive and negative sides.  It's a lovely precision die from Frantic Stamper.  It's multi-layered for dimension.  I actually had made a bow but since I was going for a cleaner look with a Sympathy card, I left it off.
