Whatnot Monday!!

It's Monday so that means another great new digital release from Paper Pretties. This week features two beautiful images of flowers, one of a rose and the other of some crocus. I chose the crocus for my card today, going with shades of purple and yellow. I used the Sweet Sunday sketch from last week (SSSC112) as my inspiration as well.
I always like to have a sympathy card on hand and just thought these flowers, when colored in this darker purple, were perfect for that. I cut the flowers a little out of the box to fit the sketch and put my sentiment below the image, instead of in the bottom left corner. It just fit better there.
The background paper is simple to highlight the beautiful flowers.
Be sure to stop by the Paper Pretties blog to see what the design team has for you this week!

  1. Kelly, your crocus is beautiful! The purple is gorgeous, and it would truly bring comfort to someone in their grief. A stunning card.

  2. Wonderful card! I love how the flower is going off the edge. Beautiful!

  3. Kelly, I love the way you make the colours flow into each other.
    The colour is pretty much similar to mine, seems we had a similar taste on crocuses *haha*
