Retro Sketches #60 and Fab Friday #16 {Sending Love & Sympathy}

I've been patiently waiting for this day to come! Today, Stampin Up demonstrators get to have an early peek at the new Stampin Up annual catalogue!!  So excited to see what Stampin Up has come up with this year! 

Today's card features a great layout based on the Retro Sketches sketch and a nice soft colour combo from Fab Friday.

I thought this colour combo would be perfect for a sympathy card. Summer Startfruit is still growing on me, but I love it with these colours! Here's how my card turned out:

To add some detail I embossed the piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the square lattice pattern. The roses are sponged with Calypso Coral ink and instead of the traditional green leaves, I decided to stick with the colour combo and used Summer Starfruit instead - I like how it turned out! The Calypso Coral bakers twine is the perfect embellishment to complete the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
