Tuesday's color challenge

*gasp* I'm stamping in the middle of the week!

It might actually happen often this week - and earlier in the day too. I go in later than normal for the rest of the week - which gives me a bit more stamping time in the mornings.

Anyway, back to the card. The colors for today are Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky and Basic Black. A very pretty combo and it works perfectly into my need for a sympathy card - one of my SCS friends had her grandfather pass away over the weekend.

All stamps on the card come from Papertrey's Garden of Life set. I stamped the solid flower in Soft Sky and layered the outline on top in Purely Pomegranate. The image panel is edged in Palette Noir (I dragged the ink pad down the edge) and the Soft Sky layer below is edged in Purely Pomegranate. The centers of the flowers have Cloud 9 Rain Drops as their centers.

The sentiment strip is 1/2" of leftover Purely Pomegranate cardstock with black velvet ribbon layered over top and the sentiment punched out with the word window punch.
Stamps: Papertrey - Garden of Life. Paper: Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky (cs and dp), white. Ink: Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, Palette Noir. Accessories: word window punch, dimensionals, rain drops, velvet ribbon.

It's cold here again. If anyone who has warm weather could send a bit my way, I'd appreciate it.

Sara, this is a very pretty card. I like how you ran the ink on the outside of each layer; it helps it pop. Thanks for sharing.
