Thinking of you Monkey Challenge

I have been stamping a lot this week, a few nights until 2am. lol This week at A La Card Monkey we are doing a sketch with a "Thinking of  You" or "Sympathy" theme. I used 3 stamp sets I have never used before, one of them "Wonderful Favorites" I have had it few years.  I had used the "Aviary" set before but I had borrowed it from Terry, mine was new not even opened yet. Gee's
My friend Misty came over and wanted me to make a card for her friend that moved to Texas. She seen this stamp set on my wall and wanted the card to say "favorite friend".

This is the sketch for this week, with the theme Sympathy or Thinking of you.

I used the little tiny pearls on the flower.

Hemp twine inside the button.
