Field Flower Sympathy...

Hi there,

Today's Friday Mashup challenge is a colour one, brought to us by Tara...

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a card using the colors "Sahara Sand, Perfect Plum & Wisteria Wonder".
  2. Create a card and "Mail or Deliver it to Someone Special".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a card with "Sahara Sand, Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder & Mail or Deliver it to someone special".
I loved these colours together, and the soft and pretty combination I thought would work well for a sympathy card. These are cards that no one likes sending but are very needed, and I never seem to have them to hand so I thought I would make one. Although it's not going to be sent to anyone right now, I hope that when it is needed, it will bring comfort to someone...

I used the pretty Field Flowers set, stamping them first in Wisteria Wonder then Perfect Plum. I cut them out and popped them over the stems image (stamped with Sahara Sand), then stamped the sentiment at the bottom (from Hopeful Thoughts). The dsp in the background is First Edition dsp that I brayered with Wisteria Wonder ink and stamped with the flourish from Creative Elements for a bit of added detail. The Sahara Sand panel was embossed with the woodgrain embossing folder and I added some Wisteria Wonder ribbon and an antique brad to finish off.

Make sure you check out the lovely purpley creations of the rest of the design team!

Thanks for stopping by...
