Papertrey DT color challenge



After a long day of writing I went downstairs to try to make at least one card for the current Papertrey challenge, which offered up favorite color palettes of the designers. I have been on the computer for two solid days, just about, but without much time to blog hop, so I'll be visiting other folks' blogs soon! Anyway, I chose Michelle's color palette as very soothing and as I worked I found my fingers making a sympathy card. I unfortunately have need of one and I'm trying not to make them so doleful and dark as I usually do. I added the little black bird near the sentiment and roughened up the edges of the paper around the tree and mat because grief is a rough period to get through. Thanks for looking.

Stamps: PTI Through the Trees
Paper: Kraft, vintage cream, PTI designer paper with spring moss and aqua
Ink: versamark, Spring Green, vintage cream
Other: aqua ribbon, clear EP
