My SC236 card using the beautiful and recently retired Essence of Love silhouette image. I used the Direct to Paper inking technique for the beautiful background. My colors were Pacific Point, Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze In Colors that also just retired. I just used the corner of the ink pad and dragged down the WWhite CS with the 3 colors leaving a little white showing. I gave my dragging a little swirling for an interesting look. Kind of looks like sky if you use your imagination :-)
This is a sympathy card for a close friend whose 45 yo sister just died of breast cancer. So sad....
Give those close to you a big love today......

First of all, I think these colors are quite striking together. But that gorgeous DTP background! I'm very inspired! It came out just perfect, Nancy! A very pretty card. I'm sorry it had to be for such a sad occasion.
