AYSI156 Poppy Sympathy

Hello everyone!  It's Friday....the end of the week, yippee!  And it's time for another As You See It challenge; this week it is a color challenge!  And it was a challenge for me!

Image may contain: text

You all know my feelings about Lemon Lime Twist (although I am getting a little more used to it), and I rarely use Elegant Eggplant.  So to match up these colors with Real Red was a real stretch for me.  Unfortunately, I needed another sympathy card, and I remembered this pretty PTI set called Botanical Silhouettes:

Because of the strong colors, I kept this card very clean and simple!  I stamped the stems along the side of the card, and since they didn't quite reach the edge, I filled them in with a Lemon Lime Twist marker.  I added the poppies in Real Red and the sentiment and border in Elegant Eggplant

I also used the sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches:

The inside of the card used the dandelion image from the same set along with a diecut and sentiments from another PTI set, Inspired: Prayer.  I also stamped some speckles from Gorgeous Grunge.

It was interesting to see how the others on the DT used these colors...I hope you'll stop over to the AYSI blog, check them out, and be bold and share your creation with us too!

This is gorgeous LeAnne! Sometimes simple is everything you need. Lemon Lime Twist is growing on me too. I like it in combination with black or gray. ~chris

Just beautiful, LeAnne! Love your clean & simple sympathy card! I can only imagine how hard it was to use those colors and then to use it for a sympathy card! They are one of the toughest cards to make in my opinion but you have done beautifully! TFS and Happy Friday! :)

Fantastic! I have to do something with this challenge as Lemon Lime Twist and Elegant Eggplant are two of my favorite colors. The real red will be my challenge! Have a great weekend.
