Simple Sympathy Card

Today's card was made for a fellow demonstrator from Utah that is currently living in the hospital while she undergoes treatment for cancer.  I don't know her personally, but I feel connectled to her through Stampin'Up!  I made her this card to cheer her up and to let her know that things will ger better.
This card was made using the designer series paper Paisley Petals (122367), River Rock card stock and the stamp set Blessings from Heaven.  It is a very simple card, but yet beautiful.  The one amazing thing about this card is the color combination.  I would have never thought of it on my own and that's why the catalog is so handy to have next to you when your creating.  Each of the designer papers has a list of the coordinating colors of card stock (page 185 in the 2011-2012 catalog).  This list is SO helpful!  In the case of this card, it really helped me pull out the River Rock color from the centers of the flowers and tie everything together.

Hope you like it and will challenge your self to use the colors listed with the designer paper.
