CTD#226 - With Sympathy

 Hello friends!  Are you ready for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge?  I hope so because our hostess Denise has chosen some pretty colors for all of us to create with this week.
 For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Rosie Posie, Think Big Favorites and Turning a New Leaf to create a sympathy card for some dear friends of mine who lost their father.  I started out with a garden green card base which I embossed with a PTI impressions plate, then added my white panel that I had stamped with my sentiment, stamped off leaves and perfect plum dots.  Next I added my die-cut roses with coordinating leaves and a few small pearls surrounding them to finish my card off.
