Sympathy color challenge

I have been so busy that I have not been able to play in many of the Splitcoast challenges like I used to. Tuesday I was able to jump into the color challenge and it was a combo that I would not have thought of so that is cool. I really like the soft and subtle look of mellow moss, kraft, and white. I thought they were very soothing and would make a good combo for a sympathy card.

I embossed the forget me nots with white onto kraft paper and sponged moss ink around them while still in the nestie die. I added a pearl to the center of each and used a white gel pen to draw a frame around them to make them stand out. My layout is from the sweet stop sketch blog this week. This is one of my favorite sets from Sweet N Sassy and was just released on October 1st. They look great colored (or not) and the set contains some wonderful sentiments so it is very universal too. You can see the set HERE. I know you will love it!

I was also wondering if you guys would be willing to do me a favor too. When you place your orders with Sweet N Sassy stamps if you could just put my name in the comment field (JANETTE) so they know who referred you. It is something new we are going to try out. I am hoping to win a set and if I do that is going to mean some blog candy for you all here on my blog- sound good?

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Forget Me Not
CS- mellow moss, white, kraft, Anna Griffin dp (this has been in my scrapbooking stash forever)
accessories- pearls, curved rectangle nesties, white satin ribbon, pop dots, white ep

Thanks for stopping in today. Many blessings to you!!

Your card is beautiful Janette! I wouldn't have picked those colors either but together they look wonderful on your card. Very comforting and serene.
