Warmth Sympathy.


At this time of the year, it is hard for me not to stare in space thinking that I can almost smell the salty ocean and feel the warm breeze that emanates from it. Just to be shaken into reality that the temperature is not conducive to that.

Nonetheless, the colors at the Dostamper Stars Challenge 105  gave me some chance to feel and smell all that. I combined those beautiful colors with the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 242. Bermuda Bay, says it all, but combine with the Tangerine Tango makes it all perfect. Why did I use a Sympathy sentiment? Well, I believe that a person in grief can benefit from some warmth. The Papillon Potpourri stamp set and the coordinating punches gave the correct amount of touch, keeping the card simple. The sentiment I took from Love & Sympathy stamp set and that beautiful background is from the I Love Lace background stamp and it was the perfect touch.

And there are more inspiration for this sketch. Check them out:
