peaceful colored sympathy

This was totally inspired by an color combo i was asked to stamp this close to a memory set in for a snag for Diane in Iowa. Thanks Diane! the petals are so saffron, the stems are mellow moss and the sentiments always artichoke (markers) and the mat on this is river rock card stock and since i had originally cut it on the largest size of petite ovals i then trimmed it with scissors to add the black mat. this is up on pop dots and the gold organdy is unknown. (the gold looks better with the petals in real life though then in this photo) the speckled green card stock was from that club scrap prize and the black textured card stock is bazzill. the base of this 5X7 card is river rock that was randomly stamped with the hero arts fancy filaments leaf stamp.
not sure if the gold bow is just over the top on a sympathy card or not? Tim's thought was i could change it to a black bow. (which of course would require a shopping trip since i don't have black organdy that would fit into those huge holes from the ribbon slot punch) I did think though as i was doing it because i do not need a sympathy card at the moment it was alot easier to put this together then they usually are like when you need one. so I may play with this set some more while i have it out.

This is very pretty. I like the color combo. I also like the gold ribbon and I wouldn't change it to black if it was me. It matches the flowers and gives the card a soft look. Very appropriate for a sympathy card.

I really like the color combination on this card, Stacy.

They really go together.

I {like} the ribbon on the card myself.

I think it is easier to do sympathy cards when you do not {need} to, KWIM?

If there is righteousness in the heart,
There will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character,
There will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home,
There will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the world.
So let it be.

Merry Christmas!
