"With Sympathy"

Hello My Crafty Friends,
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!! I sure did and had a movie day with my son and husband to see Journey 2.  My son really enjoyed it and so did we.  We are off to a new week and Valentine's is around the corner and I hope you have all your goodies ready!  Today, I made a couple of cards quite the same the only difference was the sentiments one was With Sympathy and the other Forever & Always.  I used the Stampin' Up!'s stamp set called Loving Thoughts.  I so... LOVE the font on this set and you can bet I will be using it lots more. Thank you so much for stopping by today and have a fantastic week!!!
I love how this card turned out with the Fancy Fan Letterpress plate just make sure to use a pigment ink with the plate for best results.  The image is from Bordering Romance Stamp set and colored with Stampin, Up! markers.
I added some stripes of Old Olive at each end 
and some Old Olive Satin Ribbon
This side view shows the added Stampin' dimesnsionals
