The color combination and stamping for this card was inspired by a photo I saw in my latest issue of Country Living magazine. The magazine is one of my favorites - - after my papercrafting mags!
This card came together so smoothly and very quick. That usually doesn't happen to me. But once I saw the photo below, I knew exactly what I wanted to do!
Here is the card that I created, based on the comforter in the magazine photo. I kept this card fairly CAS (clean & simple) so that the focus is really on the colors of the stamped palm branches. I love this stamp set from Verve...such beautiful images AND sentiments. It's so versatile. It's called Forever In Our Hearts.
This card will be sent to the women's group at my church. We very recently lost a nephew to leukemia. He was only 18 years old. It's such a heartbreaking loss for us. The congregation had kept him in their prayers from the time he was diagnosed in 2008. The women's group at church made a prayer shawl for us and gave it to me last Sunday. It's beautiful! A wonderful handwritten note was included. What a blessing to have these caring, supportive people in our lives.
