Paper Players Challenge #65-A Sketch from AM

This week at the Paper Players, the wonderful Anne Marie Hile has come up with a fabulous sketch for us!  I am right into my Spice Cake Designer Paper!  My Auntie Kerry, asked me to design a Sympathy card that she could use for her I made one with the "Always Thankful" Stamp set and the "Petite Pairs" stamp set.  I hope she likes the card I designed.  To help her recreate the card at home, I have added the measurements below for her...if you would like to use the measurements, please feel free too!

Panels-Soft Suede-4" x 1 5/8"
Spice Cake Designer Paper Panels 3 3/4" x 1 3/8"
Main Panel- 3" x 4" in Soft Suede
Vanilla Panel (where image is stamped)- 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"
Tools used: Heat Gun, Clear Embossing Powder, Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch
