Blogger's Challenge 27


Another Friday and another Blogger's Challenge. This week we were to use something for inspiration. As I walked around my home this week I found this shell that someone special had brought back from Florida for me. It always makes me feel calm and serene when I look at it. I love the color purple and the water so that may be why. I thought that those feelings would be perfect for a sympathy card. I actually used the splitcoaststampers sketch challenge again that I used on my last post and some paper that I was challenging myself to use since it was a customer mistake. I don't really like the pattern on this designer paper but I think it is ok with this card. The base of the card is Lovely Lilac and the inks used were Almost Amethyst and Lovely Lilac. The card was almost too simple but I can not see what I could add that would not change the feel. Hope you enjoy.
