Its time again for Coloring Down the Lines challenge!!! This week's colors are Marina Mist and Bashful Blue.  
Now first glance at those colors makes me think "baby card"! So I decided, no, no baby card! Gonna go outside the box-sorta!!!

So welcome on over from Helen's blog!!! I hope you're having fun "hopping" today!!! I know Helen's great with the 2-color challenges!!!

So what d'ya think?

So I went with a sympathy card. I seem to always have need for those. Whether for myself or for my customers! They seem to be a hot commodity!

Whenever I do a sympathy card,I tend to think less is more. This is a fairly simple card, but it has some fun details!

First, I used my Secret Garden stamp set & Framelits from the  
Spring Mini Catalog. I sure hope this set will appear in the new Catalog in May!!! It's very pretty & so versatile!

The first flower is stamped & embossed on the matte. The second is stamped & embossed on some Marina Mist cardstock & attached with a Glue Dot. The 3rd & top flower is stamped & embossed on Vellum then die cut. I used my 
Aqua Painter & my inks & sorta watercolored the flowers for depth & texture. I also used a Dimensional on the flower on the bottom picture.

Add a few little Rhinestone Jewels & ya got a neat accent! I pulled out the almost forgotten 5/8" Crochet Trim!

So now hop over to Sandy's blog & see what she did with these 2 blues! I think I like them together! I know I'll love what she did!!!

So until next time..

Happy Stampin'!!!
