Blue Stems on Gray

Peaceful colors and images for a sympathy card.  Then I made another with "just a note" sentiment, and a "happy birthday" with a white bow added. 

I like the asymmetrical panel layout and the blue stems with a touch of green, though it still feels monochromatic to me.  Plenty of detail without seeming cluttered. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) soft stone (light gray), blueberry sky (medium blue), and the polka dot print from PTI spring rain pattern pack.
  • Twine is white DMC #5 perle cotton.
  • The stems are from PTI peaceful garden, stamped with PTI blueberry sky and new leaf (green) ink cubes.  The stem groups on the left and right came from one stamp that I cut apart.
  • The sentiment "with sympathy" is from PTI keep it simple: sympathy, stamped with PTI blueberry sky ink cube.

This is a beautiful sympathy card. It is so soft and peaceful making it perfect for the reason it's being sent.
