Color Challenge #33

I had to fight using an 'Ice Creamy' palette for Sorbet, lol. This week wasn't really inspired by anything except that I liked these colors together. I'm still a little on the fall theme but Sorbet is nice and soft so I wanted a nice, soft combo to go with it's debut color challenge. To play use 3 of the colors and send me a link so I can add it here. Have fun!

Sorbet
Taffy
Garden Green

My Sample :

Supplies: Cardstock, Parchment Brads, Col White Ribbon Collection, and Treasure Life Stamp set all CTMH

I have been trying to think of a card to make for my Aunt for the past few days now and decided to go ahead and use this color challenge for her card. I just found out she has cancer and I haven't seen her in like 9 years. And it's only been the past few months that I've developed the actual beginning to relationship with my own mom (this aunt is on my mom's side), so I kind of feel the need to try and build a connection with my aunt with what is happening but at the same time I feel awkward about it because we have never been close or even in contact. Paul urged me to go ahead and send her a card to let her know we are thinking of her and praying for her so this is what I came up with. I wanted something pretty but simple. I hope she likes it and that it helps her feel at least a little better.

Marjorie, your card is wonderful. I'm sorry about your aunt and I think this card is just perfect for the occasion. My aunt has also been battling cancer. I am very close to her, though. I was making a card last night for her and still wasn't sure what kind of sentiment to use. Anyway, I'm sure your aunt will be most appreciative of this card and your gesture.

I did the color challenge. Check it out on my blog. At first I wasn't sure of the colors, until I got them out. I really liked them.
