This is for this week’s color challenge. I also used sketch challenge SC69.
Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card for a coworker. I've always wanted to use the All I Have Seen set for a condolence card, but after completing it, I'm thinking this combo may be too wild. I'm kind of a *low key* sympathy card type of person. I can't decide if I'll use it yet. Luckily, I have others in my stash.
I have Groovy Guava paper but no GG ink. And I just realized as I posted this that the color combo called for Artichoke, not Olive. Oops!
I used Choc. Chip as a neutral color. The background is guava, stamped with coral Fine Lace with Sanded stamped over it using olive.
For the horizontal piece, on top I have 1/4" sheer green ribbon with double gold thread to tone down a brighter, wider (5/8") striped ribbon with green, white and coral in it. The widest green horizontal strip is Basic Grey dp. Above and below that dp are two strips of guava which are stamped with tiny scallops in olive. This is one of about 6 line stamps from my Faux Ribbon set by Papertrey. I love that set!
