FMS308 and CC79 Rustic Neutrals


Hi all!  I had a nice relaxing evening and had fun creating this neutral-hued card for The Card Concept and the Freshly Made Sketches sketch:


So here we go:


For the "style" that I used here, I guess it could be called Classy Elegant or maybe Shabby Chic!  I started with a Crumb Cake background and pulled out a really old background stamp called Weathered and stamped it with Craft White ink.  I used a Tim Holtz brick embossing folder for the Very Vanilla panel; the wreath is made with some Kraft cardstock; the pumpkins are stamped in various neutral shades, and the leaves were diecut from Soft Sky, Mint Macaron and Lost Lagoon that were sponged with Craft White ink to soften the colors a bit.


I added some sequins, a Champagne Foil horizontal panel, and a sympathy sentiment inside and out:
  

So happy you dropped by today!

Cassidy was proud to show me the plant she is growing in school!
  

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Love your card, LeAnne! Love the mix of colors and how you soften them. Sympathy cards aren't the easiest to create but yours is just perfect especially for this time of year! Nice job! :)

LeAnne, I've been meaning to comment on this card since I first saw it. It's such an unusual colour combination, yet it is so very lovely. I think you must be very good at flower arranging too, as your embellishment clusters are always so cleverly placed. Well done, Perfect Princess!
