CTD201/MOJO250 - Sympathy

Hi there!  It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge
Before I begin, if you haven't been over to the Color Throwdown blog to see, I wanted to announce the winner of the blog candy I had up for grabs from last week's 200th Color Throwdown Challenge Celebration. 
The winner is...Cassie from A Day in the Life of a Homeschooling Mom.  Congratulations Cassie!
Wanda is our hostess for this week's challenge and she's chosen some wonderful colors and a great inspiration photo for all of us to create with.

For my card I created a sympathy card using not only the color for this week's challenge but the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #250.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Think Big Favorites #3 along with the My Favorite Things Rolled Roses die.
