Avant Garden Any Occasions Card

How BEAUTIFUL is this Avant Garden Stamp Set???

It's never nice having to make those 'sad occasion' cards is it, and I know I sometimes struggle with them. When making this card, I wanted to make it so that it could be used to cheer someone up, to let them know that they're being thought of, without it necessarily being a sympathy card.  I chose the beautiful Avant Garden Stamp Set.  It was just perfect for what I wanted to achieve.  The Sentiment is taken from the Heartfelt Sympathy Stamp Set.

Anyway, back to this card.......
