Festive Friday: Heartfelt Sympathy

Two Days – Two Ways: It’s day 2, time to see how I switched it up!

Today I have a completely different take on Heartfelt Sympathy. Same sentiment, but more feminine in its design…. This time, inspired by Festive Friday:

I don’t send out Easter cards, so this week, I opted to just focus on the Flowers part of the Festive Friday Challenge.

As you can see, compared to yesterday’s card, there’s a much more feminine vibe going on. Sweet Sugarplum and Dapper Denim work amazing together. Of course, they’re from the same soon-to-be-retiring In Color family, (Be sure to pick up your favorites now!) so, that’s an easy, go-to combo.

Mixed metals are really popular right now, too! Don’t be afraid to experiment with that concept! A way to warm up the metals, and the somewhat cool shade of purple is to use Very Vanilla. I’m guilty of not using it very often as I really favor the crispness of Whisper White, but it surely does have its place. This is a perfect example!
