This week's SCS Inspiration Challenge was suggested by Holly (Toy) who said the fabulous designs at Rooms by Zoya B made her "squeal" (you've got check out her gorgeous inspired Nautical Birthday card).
Unfortunately, I needed another sympathy card this week for a co-worker who lost his mother, but thankfully this beautiful Baudard Rug was the perfect inspiration I needed. The color palette and floral design reminded me of one of my favorite paper collections ... Queen Bee by Pink Paislee ... which i think is perfect for sympathy card designs.
I used a clear Pink Paislee Queen Bee border sticker along the top (you can see the flourish under the knot of the ribbon), but it didn't have quite the contrast I was hoping for against the darker background paper, so I added a wrap of sheer yellow ribbon. I finished with some Memory Box adhesive Daffodil pearls at the corners.
I hope you find Inspiration.
