Welcome back to CR84FN Color Challenge! I am so glad to be back, especially with these fabulous colors! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season with your family and friends, and are looking forward to 2013! Yahoo!!!!
On to our current color challenge:
Raspberry ~ Lavendar ~ Neutral
Unfortunately, I needed to make a sympathy card for a very dear friend of mine. I just loved the raspberry and lavender color selection, so I wanted to use them for this card. I was hoping the browns and creams would really soften the raspberry and lavender, since it was going to be a sympathy card. And they really turned out nice together!
I found some really cool papers at Michael's called Industrial Chic by Susan Lenart Kazmen. Are you familiar with her stuff? I just discovered her!! Lots of cool papers, and charms, etc...! I didn't want to cover the this pretty scripted paper so I decided to heat emboss the sentiment (Verve) onto some vellum, so the pretty script and soft colors would show through. I used eggplant ink with clear embossing powder for the sentiment.
I always like butterflies for a sympathy card, and I just LOVE this die by Memory Box so I just had to use them again!
I added some stitching to the back panel and across the top of the vellum panel.
I hope this card brings a little comfort to my friend.
