Sympathy Card made with Secret Garden Stamps and Framelits

I got this beautiful sympathy card from a fellow demonstrator - Lori Verdon. She did several things that make this card ideal for a sympathy card: the line of images flowing from corner to corner  - and - the single flower stamped in a lighter color.

Lori chose perfect colors for a sympathy card, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. This neutral palette sets an appropriate tone for the occasion. These gorgeous flower images are from a stamp set called Secret Garden. But the choice of neutral colors allows the focus to be on the sentiment.

Did you notice the raised flower? One thing I so appreciate about Stampin'UP! is the matched sets of stamps and dies. Lori could have "fussy cut" the flowers. But why bother when there's a set of matching framelits to make life easy! 

Here are a couple of other projects made with the Secret Garden stamps and Framelits.

This flower looks so delicate when stamped in white on pink paper. 
And what a time-saver to be able to die cut the image instead of fussy cutting!

Do you agree that those die cut leaves look great even without stamping an image.
