Monochromatic Sympathy

DSCF4747

For my second post today, I needed a couple sympathy cards, so I combined three challenges:

  1. SCS Sketch Challenge 239 from Silke
  2. Stacey's Stamping Stage Curtain Call Act 1
  3. and Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday FTTC26

DSCF4745

Stacey's challenge was to use Not Quite Navy, Night of Navy and Whisper White; she chose her inspiration from this bedding:

act1

Gorgeous, huh?  And the Flourishes challenge was to make a monochromatic card, so this fit perfectly.   On my sample above, I used pearls in the lower right hand corner; on another, I used smaller pearls in the tree:DSCF4748

 

The set I am using is Thoughts and Prayers, a wonderful versatile set.  Papers and ink are Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy; the DP is retired Patterns from a Hostess Pack.  Ribbon is white taffeta, also SU.  Thanks for visiting today!

LeAnne, this is gorgeous! It reminds me of one of my best stampin' stories....one of my customers' husband died & I sent her a card right away. She took the card to the funeral home & was showing all her friends!! I was actually embarrassed - it was like "yeah, Bill died, but look at the card Kim sent!!!" Geez!!

Anyway, when I saw this card it made me think - "yeah, this is one I'd be showing off, too!!" LOL!!

It's beautiful, not that I'm surprised. Your work is gorgeous. TFS!!
