Watercolor Sympathy ~ Stampin' Celebration

It seems as though I have had to make an abundance of sympathy cards for my friends lately.  They will never be my favorite card to create, but they are some of the most important cards I make. When a friend loses a loved one I like to make a sympathy card for their family.  As I make the card I think about them and pray for them.  It's a way of healing and connecting for me, and it personalizes each card.  

This card was made for one of my cardmaking friends.  She has taught me just how beautiful a Clean And Simple (CAS) card can be.  My color inspiration came from the gorgeous photo at Stampin' Celebration. 

Doesn't that spark your creative mojo?  I'm in love with the yummy colors and plan to make another card inspired by this photo.  Perhaps a birthday card or even a Christmas card.  I hope you will check out the challenge and see what my fellow design team members have created.  I can't wait to see what you come up with using this inspiration photo.

One last thing before I go.   Tomorrow is the last day leave a comment on THIS POST for your chance to win a spot in the A Very Trendy Holiday 2.0 online card class.   :)
