A Sympathy Card

Good morning everyone. Carole here. I hope you have all survived the earthquakes and hurricane unscathed. I have a card to share today that was made for a close friend whose husband passed away on Thursday after a hard-fought battle with cancer.

When I was choosing colours for my card, I realized that I didn't have the colour I wanted for my flowers, so I mixed Blush and Pumpkin to get a colour that more closely matched my patterned paper. Peach might have done quite nicely, but I don't have it, and anyway, it's fun to mix colours and see what you come up with. It makes your Creative Inspirations Paints that much more versatile.
I also used a hint of Sunshine for the pistol & stamens, as well as Mint for the leaves and stems. There is just enough shimmer to add elegance without overwhelming a sympathy card.

What a beautiful card. I'm sorry that you need a sympathy card... in other words, I'm so sorry for your loss.

Lovely, lovely work. I think mixing two colours is such a great idea. I'll do that too.

Beautiful card. Sympathy cards are so hard to make.
