Beautiful Sympathy card

I used Mellow Moss cardstock for my cards base, then I stamped the leaf images all over the card using my Versamark stamp pad. The stamp set I used is a clear set from Stampendous that I had picked up from Michael's several months ago when they first came out ( love this stamp set). Next I attached a strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock across the center of the card, and then I attached a piece of cream colored (almost marbled) cardstock to the center of the card. I then stamped 2 single leaves on either side of the center stamped image using the white dew drop ink pad, which I thought made the card more like a sympathy card. I stamped the center images on the cardstock using the Niagra Mist dew drop ink pad , and added the sentiment "Comfort" in the bottom corner of my center stamped image using the Bravo Burgandy SU ink pad. This card isn't for anyone inparticular, it is just going to be part of a card set that I am making for my sister in law or my son's teacher, that will go in the altered boxes I posted earlier. Am impressed how this card turned out, at first I wasn't sure as to how this card was going to turn was iffy for a few hours :)!
