This week at The PerfectSentiments Challenge #73 we’d like you to create a card with a sentiment of Sympathy or Thinking of You.
Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish who will award 5 free digis to a lucky winner. Many of our design team used digis from Robyn's Fetish in their cards today. Be sure you check them out.
Easter Sunday I saw the first daffodil open in my yard. Today I saw more. There is something so soothing and exciting when new life emerges in the spring. I seem to need a lot of sympathy cards for older adults, so I chose to make one with a floral image from Graphic 45's Botanicabella paper pack. I chose my color palette from those blooming bulbs.
The background cardstock was embossed with the Cuttlebug folder called "Poppies" which also came with a strip of embossing folder that I used on the Petal cardstock strip. I used three dies made by Spellbinder's Nestabilities. The reddish Tulip cardstock was cut with the Lacey Ovals. I used a very dark purple Bazzill to cut the Fleur de Lis Rectangle and the Colonial White journaling spot was cut with their Scalloped Oval. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart.
The sketch came from Mojo Monday's Contest sketch #287.
