Hello! I am excited today to be playing in the 300th challenge at Color My Heart. I am so grateful to Marie for the shoutout, and I'm so grateful that she has kept my dream going since I had to step down due to homeschooling. I'm so grateful to the whole design team, past and present. Thank you to Marie, Becca, Caroline, Lela, Sheri, Sheila, Hansi, Tina, Linda, Gretchen, Michelle, Amie, Pam, Shirley, Peachy, Jen, Donna, Catherine, Carmen, Tracey, Suzanne, Susan, Alyson, Debi, and Melanie. I'm sorry if I forgot anyone, but you all have worked so hard to make this challenge blog a success, and I hope it continues to be and I hope I'll be able to rejoin at some point. I'm having so much fun creating this summer, and I'll try to see if I can continue into the fall, although I'll be schooling all 4 of my children, so I imagine it will take up a LOT of my time!
So, onto my card. I used the sketch from Your Next Stamp, and I think some of the colors fit as well. I did some heat emossing for the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. I decided to make a sympathy card, and I hope I don't have to use it anytime soon. The paper I used is from an old fundamentals assortment. I'm not sure what Mink looks like since I don't have it, but it looked a little grey to me, so I used Whisper. The Whisper and the Pacifica fundamentals paper had the same pattern, so they fit nicely together. I used Baby Pink ink also, since I don't have Bashful yet. These two colors look so nice together!
I did some emboss resist with white embossing powder, and I watercolored the roses and leaves with my ink pads.
There is a giveaway at the Color Dare this week, so go play along. You could win a fabulous prize box full of Close to My Heart products!
