Sympathy Card: PTI CAS Style

I needed a quick, simple/easy-to-mail sympathy card today and turned to Papertrey Ink's "With Sympathy" set because it's so classy and has such perfect sentiments. Not being in a frame of mind to create an original work of art, I did what I often do: I took the easy way out and chose to "CASE" Debbie Olson's gorgeous card here. Why mess with perfection?
I changed the sentiment and positioned my pearls to better fit with it. I used cream wrinkled seam binding for my ribbon and "antiqued" just the edges with PTI's Chamomile ink, to tie in with my sentiment frame. I LOVE this ribbon and know that even after mailing, it will still look lovely!
