The Perfect Sentiments Challenge #75 - Coral Orange, Aqua Blue, and Latte

I always think color challenges are fun. This week at The Perfect Sentiment we are challenged to
CREATE A CARD FOR THE OCCASION OF YOUR CHOICE USING THE COLORS LISTED BELOW.  DON'T FORGET TO INCLUDE A SENTIMENT ON THE FRONT. Please check with the Perfect Sentiments Challenge Blog for information on the prize.

I see this color combination in nearly every store where I shop. Jennipher listed them as Coral Orange, Aqua Blue, and Latte:

 
 
 
One of my friends at church lost her sister this week so I made this card for her using a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs, "With Heartfelt Sympathy."
 
I  used this sketch from Viva La Verve April Week 1:
 
 
 
 
I  used an older Juniper patterned paper from Close To My Heart. The front side of the paper is in the background and the back side of the paper made the banner. I cut and embossed the CTMH Sorbet cardstock using Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Circles and a medium polka dot embossing folder. The die cut that I stamped was from a set of shapes I had forgotten about, an "ancient" CTMH page of punch-out die cuts before the age of the Cricut. It was inked with Sorbet ink just like the  Bazzill "Peanut" cardstock which was embossed with the Cuttlebug "Poppy" embossing folder. I actually used the debossed side, which seemed interesting at the time. Simple embellishements seemed appropriate for a sympathy card, so I tied a sorbet ribbon on top and added two Petaloo flowers with pearls.
 
Please consider joining this lovely color challenge. I can't wait to see what you create!
