Papercraft Star Challange #12

So Wednesday I had a wonderful comment from Beth over at the Papercraft Star blog. She suggested that I try out the challanges over at the Papercraft Star blog. Well I've been getting into challanges lately so I popped over and checked the blog out. Sounds like a wonderful challange this week and I've never tried this type of challange. It is a Photo Inspiration Challange.

I decided to go with the colors in the picture. I used a brown and cream background since I think of brown when I see coffee (my mom always adds milk and and the cup looked like an off white to me. I incorporated blue since the christmas ornaments (???) in the picture are blue. Finally the Sentiment I used a paper that was similar to the cake. I wished I didn't have to make a Sympathy card, but unfortunately life gets in the way sometimes.

I used Wild Card for "With Sympathy" and the frame surrounding it and Home Accents for the branch and flowers. The inside sentiment is a stamp I purchased at Hobby Lobby.

Thanks for stopping by!
