PP573 Color Challenge Sympathy

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Time for a new Paper Players challenge, with Anne Marie as our hostess!  Check out these lovely colors:

I needed a sympathy card this week, so I used the new SAB Special Moments for my sentiment, and an Altenew Dot Botanicals for the background:


The recipient loves bird-watching, so I pulled out an older bird die, cutting it from some Pale Papaya cardstock and backing it with Calypso Coral.  I also sponged the edges with CC ink and colored his beak and feet with a Blend.  I had the Just Jade stitched border left over from another project and I thought it would be a nice way to add a bit of color.

After stamping the sentiment with Calypso Coral, I diecut it with the panel die from Pierced Blooms and stamped another Dot Botanical image overtop with Pale Papaya ink.  I finished it off with a stitched banner from Tasteful Labels dies:

On the inside, I added a Bible verse from Sweet n Sassy and a couple more botanicals.

I hope these pretty colors will inspire you this week!  Be sure to share your creation with us at the Paper Players, and while you're there, check out what the DT has created as well!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

A beautiful sympathy card, LeAnne! The simple dotted images are the perfect backdrop for the sweetest little bird die cut I have ever seen. The sentiment is so meaningful. I know the recipient will find comfort.
