I love greens and blues together, I think they make a nice sympathy card when you use more subdued tones.

One more sympathy card, and now it's time for today's new creation! Spoiler alert, it has blue and green on it, but it's not subdued for a sympathy card and it might be one of my favorite cards this year. Take a look:
I just had to use Joyful Christmas again because that flower is so pretty. And I was inspired by these colorful poinsettias at my local grocery store:
They have glitter on them in addition to being a wonderful shade of royal blue. Aren't they pretty?
I also used this week's Pals Paper Arts sketch:
And this week's Color Throwdown is a free-for-all Christmas challenge:
I used Garden Green, Pacific Point, and Blackberry Bliss, and I think I love that combination. The poinsettia was inked with Versamark, then Blackberry Bliss, and I used Iridescent Ice embossing powder plus it's stamped on shimmery white cardstock. For the leaves, I just stamped them in Garden Green, so they ran a little bit when I watercolored them. I waited until the water dried and then used the fine tip of my Garden Green marker to go over the lines again, and I like how that worked out for me.
Anyway, I've got to get moving. Have a great weekend, peeps, and if you haven't seen the new Star Wars movie yet I won't spoil any plot points for you. May the Force be with you!
