So this week's Coloring Down the Lines featured color is Gumball Green. Add in Midnight Muse & Marina Mist & ya got one of my favorite color combos!!! Didn't know that before this challenge tho! That's why I love these challenges so much-gets the creative juices flowing!!!

So welcome over those who "hopped" here from Helen's blog!!! Glad you could make it! I bet you love her card this week!!! I do!!!

So here's what I came up with:

I used the new Honeycomb embossing folder from the Spring Catalog!! I LOVE this folder! One of the best ever!!!!

Unfortunately, I seem to need more sympathy cards than anything these days! This could be sympathy or just empathy. This Thinking of You stamp set is a beautiful set.  I just love that tree!!!

The slide is from the Holiday Mini. I wish they'd continued those! I really like them! Of course, I used it on the retired grosgrain ribbon! I have a lot of that! I love it! Kinda stocked up when I found out it was retiring.  I think there's still some on the Clearance Rack!

I used some Dazzling Details to add a sparkle to the tree! See...

Just enough to give it an extra "pop". Didn't wanna go too blingy on a sympathy card!

So this is a very clean & simple card this week. No fancy techniques or anything. I really like how those colors work together tho!

So "hop" on over to Liz's blog & see how she used Gumball Green on her card. Take a guess...did she use the Midnight Muse or So Saffron?? Be sure to let her know how much you love her work!!!

Happy Stampin!


  1. Really pretty card, Joni. I love the honeycomb. It's one I'd like to CASE. May I?
    Love it!

  2. Joni, LOVE THIS ONE! I'm definately gonna case it! This is the most gorgeous blue, don't ya think? So rich. and I love this set also. IT's always refreshing. HUGS!

  3. This is really special, Joni. What a nice "feel" to a thinking of you card. And you are right, this color combo is wonderful. I, too, love this set. And don't get me started on that new honeycomb emb folder. I have to stop myself from using it on every card -- love it. Great challenge.

  4. Joni: I love your card. You did wonders with the color combination. I am definitely going to CASE all the cards on this blog hop! Love it, Joni.
