Sympathy Time - DCD DT card

Ooops, so sorry I forgot to post my Die Cut Dreams DT card.  So another week begins and that must mean it is time for a new challenge at Die Cut Dreams.  Thank you once again to all those who entered our last challenge.  Please remember to stop by the Die Cut Dreams challenge blog to see if you were one of our lucky winners.
So, onto the new challenge and this time the theme is:
SYMPATHY
Let's face it, they are the sort of cards that nobody wants to make but always need at some point!
So time to get your thinking hats on and get crafting.
Here is my project for this fortnight's challenge:
This card is made using only two stamps, both available at Clarity Stamps.  The little corner stamp is placed in each of the four corners on the base card, I used a VersaMagic Chalk ink pad in Eggplant.

Then the same stamp is placed in each of the four corners on a smaller piece of white card, which is matted on to a slightly larger piece of aubergine coloured card.

The Thinking of You stamp is then stamped in the middle of the smaller piece of card.  Then, very carefully, using second generation ink stamped again but slightly lower and to the left of the first inking thus giving a shadow effect.  You can only achieve this effect with clear stamps because you can see through them to where they are being placed.
Well peeps, I can't wait to see what you all come up with over the next two weeks.  Have fun!
