Wishing you comfort.

This card is for SCS Color Challenge #201: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, and Kraft. A very pretty combination. It's also a sympathy card. Unfortunately, we need one of these occasionally, and I thought these colors were very soothing and it won't hurt to have one on hand.

My base card is Kraft, with a layer of Not Quite Navy, then a layer of Baja Breeze with a good deal of paper piercing using a new corner template I got from Ellen Hutson's store, and embellished with flat backed pearls. I really love how this turned out. The focal image is first Not Quite Navy (love that color!), then Kraft with an image stamped from Flourshes' set Thinking of You in Not Quite Navy. Both layers are embellished with flat backed pearls and each layer is up on 3M foam squares, The sentiment, also stamped in Not Quite Navy, is from (what else?) Verve's Wonderful Wishes set. Prima flowers and punched leaves in the challenge colors balance it all.

Thanks for stopping by!
