Sympathy Card for Two Challenges

I made this sympathy card for two challenges.
First, the Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge#160 here. And second, the PPA#104-CAS-Paper Piercing, here.
I started with Old Olive card stock for a base and added three of the papers from Paisley Petals DSP.
I colored in the stamp from Pocket Silhouettes with my Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Markers. I pierced holes in the Whisper White piece with my Paper Piercing tool. I matted that with Old Olive and popped up the entire panel with Stampin' dimensionals.  I stamped With Sympathy from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Old Olive and punched it out with the Word Window Punch. I layered that onto an Olive piece punched with the Modern Label punch. Finally, some 1/4 inch Old Olive grosgrain finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papers: Whisper White, Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Paisley Petals DSP
Inks: Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin' Write markers
Accessories: Word Window and Modern Label punches, Paper Piercing tool, Stampin' dimensionals, 1/4 inch Old Olive grosgrain

It turned out great. I love the Pocket Silhouettes stamp done with Calypso Coral.

Great use of the colours in the paper (maybe not ugly as Lisa said but not my fave). You made them look good, girl! Thanks for playing at CCMC this week!
