Subtle Colors

Doing double duty again with challenges from Freshly Made Sketches with this sketch

and this inspiration picture from Papercraft Star

I have a subtle, soft card just right for a sympathy card:

The focus has kraft cardstock stamped with SU Blooming with Kindness flower in white then over stamped in SU Tempting Turquoise (stamped off once) just off enough to show some white. Over that is sentiment from SU. The blue solid has the same flower stamped with Versamark. The green strip has ferns stamped with Versamark. Since I will be sending this in the mail, I made a matching button with a SI Sizzlet button die. Turquoise/white baker's twine in a bow completes the card.
Here is a scan of the inside. I typed a sentiment and overstamped it with the same flower in tempting turquoise--stamped off 3 times first to give just a subtle hint of the flower.
