You Are In My Thoughts–CTD #194


Here I am back with this week’s
Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m your host this week and here are the colors I’ve chosen, based on my inspiration piece:

swatch 194

I decided to go sort of CAS with today’s card, so first of all, I cut out an
MFT Die-namics Large Leafy Flourish from Whip Cream card stock, rounded the bottom corners, and adhered it to a Kraft card base with it’s bottom corners rounded, as well. then I made a flower with my Die-namics Fringed Perennial set using Sno Cone card stock and Poppy Parade center. For the center, I colored some small rhinestones with a Copic marker and adhered them inside the “fringe”. To finish it off, I stamped the sentiment, from Clearly Sentimental About Sympathy, and it was done! Really simple, but I think perfect for a sympathy card, don’t you?

Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from the set:


Here are the
Die-namics dies I used on this card:
