So sorry

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsors for this week are Little Blue Button Stamps and Morgan's Art World. 

Morgan's Art is a new sponsor for us and I got to work with one of their gorgeous images.  Here is my card:
 I am going to need a sympathy card in the very near future, I'm sad to say, so I thought these gorgeous roses would be perfect.  This card is one that at every step of the way, I wasn't really happy with, but by the time I was finished, I was in love!!  First I printed out the roses and die cut them using the out of the box technique.  I colored them with my Spectrum Noirs and I just didn't love how it turned out, but then I used a pink colored pencil to add shadows and some veining and it was so much better.  But then, of course, I didn't really have any paper to match, but I found this light blue dotted paper that actually looks like a gray when paired with the peach.  Didn't know what I was going to use as a card base until I remembered I had some Mambo Melon from PTI, which was a bit too bright, but I softened it with a sheet of vellum and it is perfect!!  The ribbon has been in my stash for a super long time and there was just enough and it was the perfect shade to add a bit of contrast.  I finished everything off with some peachy pearls, and let me repeat, I love how this turned out!
Here is a close up of the gorgeous roses and a better look at the mulberry paper matting the image panel:

I always plan to have a few sympathy cards in my stash, because often the need for them is sudden. I'm sorry to hear you're going to need one soon.

Ah, this card is gorgeous! Beautiful image and so delightfully showcased. I love the beautiful ribbon and bow too, and the lovely pearls.
