PTI April Blog Hop

I forgot that today was the Papertrey Ink April Blog hop - but was reminded with an e-mail and I happened to have some time to stamp and was inspired by the photo so I am joining in -  better late than never!  
Here's Nicole's inspiration photo for the challenge.
And here is my card -  I like to keep sympathy cards on hand so that is the sentiment I used.
I've had the Lovely Layers dies for many years and finally got around to ordering the stamps that go with it recently!   

I also used the new Fun Frames die.  The sentiment and vine are from an older set Beyond Basic Borders. (this set is now in the Vault)

You'll find the challenge here.
Stamps:  Lovely Layers, Beyond Basic Borders - PTI
Paper:  Sweet Bush, Stormy Sea, white - PTI
Ink:  Sweet Blush, Stormy Sea, Bright Buttercup, Orange Zest - PTI
Accessories:  Fun Frames Dies, Lovely Layers Dies - PTI, foam dots, Tombow Liquid Glue.
