FTL106 and Creative Sketches 52

Sunday, October 16, 2011

I was unfortunately in need of a sympathy card, and although the color challenge at Creative Sketches would make a fabulous autumn card, I thought it would suit my purpose as well.
Then I poked around blogland and found that the FTL sketch gave me some ideas.

Here's what I came up with.

I think it's sort of soft and serene and although I think the button adds a little bit of fun, I decided to go with it because it finishes off the center of the flower quite nicely. It seems like it's been a while since I made a card using Crumb Cake, which is odd since it's one of my favorite colors to use.  So it's nice to look at this one and see all that Crumb Cake space!

Well, I'm off to the grocery store before the Patriots game starts, then I'll hole myself up in my stamp room and try to create something while watching the very handsome Tom Brady run around the field!

Thanks for stopping by today!

WOW! Love this so much!!

Jen said...

Hi Erna. The leaves are from a Verve stamp set called Bloom & Grow. They also have a die cut for the leaves, which I also used.
