Another Stately Flowers Card

Good morning!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  Before I head out, I'm popping in quickly to share another card I made with Melanie Muenchinger's gorgeous new stamp set, Stately Flowers 2.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I would use this set for so many different types of cards!  The beautiful florals and versatile sentiments are perfect together!

Here is my card:

This time I went with a more subdued color palette since I was making a sympathy card.  I started with a card base of SU Ruby Red and layered with patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Rosy 6x6 pad.   I stamped the small camellia from Stately Flowers 2 twice on Cryogen White and colored them with Copics.  I added some Gold Liquid Pearls dots to the flower centers.  They were cut out and popped up on foam tape.  I added a doily made with the Cheery Lynn Polynesian Sails Oval die. Everything was sponged with a little Antique Linen Distress Ink.  A few adhesive pearls finished off my card.

I used the Mojo Monday 222 sketch for my layout and the colors from the Colour Create Challenge #87 (red, sage green and cream).

Here is the Mojo sketch:

  2. Your interpretation of both challenges is beautiful. Love the papers you used too. Thank you so much for joining us at Colour Create Challenge. ;)

  3. This is so beautiful Carla. I love that layout and you did a beautiful job with the flowers. Great sympathy card. They are hard to make, I think.

  4. This card is beautiful, Carla! I love the colors and how they compliment one another. Nice job! Looking forward to the HFC hop on Jan. 31st.

  5. Just beautiful, Carla. You've got a great mix of papers and the camellia, of course, is beautiful. That's also a great sketch you used.
