Blogger's Challenge -- Color-green, yellow and brown

You can win one of my new tutorials for free by just leaving a comment on THIS POST by Sunday Night.  You can view both tutorials that are available now on my side bar.  
More coming soon.  And all for only $2 each! 

I am finally able to play along with the Blogger's Challenge.  I have been missing quite a few lately but I have added it to my goals to be consistent again!  I love doing them but my schedule changed and I forget to do it early in the week so I am ready on time.  Be sure to check what the other players are doing by clicking HERE.  

This week Lisa gave us a color challenge.  Green, Yellow and Brown.  Ohhh, love this.  I chose to use Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizazz and Chocolate Chip.  I also combined it with the MoJo sketch challenge.  Another one I don't often get to play since it is on the same day as my sketch challenge and the LNS challenge that I do.  Here is the sketch


I decided to go with a simple sympathy card.  Nothing too fancy just  pretty and to the point.  



I used the new sympathy set from the current mini Thanks for Caring.  Such a nice stamp set. 


Stamps: Thanks for Caring
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and In color DP paper pack
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: Stampin Write Markers, brads, nestabilities

Hope you have a great day!
Mary Jo
