Loving Sympathy for Mojo Monday #400

Today I am sharing a card I made for Mojo Monday, celebrating it's 400th sketch.  Congratulations, Julee and the fabulous design team!  And thanks for the tremendous sketches that each week provide such great inspiration!  Here's the fabulous sketch for this week:

While I wanted to use a more celebratory theme, unfortunately I had need of a sympathy card and this sketch really worked for the idea I had in mind.

The En Francais background stamp was inked up with Crumb Cake ink, stamped off lightly then stamped on the Very Vanilla panel, which was then over stamped with a flourish.  Watercolor paper was used for the flowers, which were stamped in Timber Brown Stazon then colored with Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride ink and an Aqua Painter.  A new Stampin' Up! In Color, Delightful Dijon, was applied to the stamens.

The doily was trimmed and adhered to the panel, then embosslet cut leaves and hand snipped flowers were layered on top, with Crumb Cake twine wrapped around after everything was distressed and sponged with Crumb Cake ink.

Julee is looking for a two new design team members, so I decided to throw my hat in the ring.  It's quite the long shot but my philosophy is nothing ventured, nothing gained, so I'm going for it!  Wish me luck!

As always, your visit and comments are so very appreciated.  Be sure to use the link to join in the fun and enjoy the amazing inspiration!
