Donation Card

Hi Stamping Friends!

Every April I get asked to donate a basket of cards to our local Christian school's silent auction fundraiser.  My kids don't attend the school, but alot of the families from our church send their children there.  Last year, my box of cards sold for well over $100!  I just put a bunch of the cards I've made for my blog in there.  This year, when they contacted me about donating, the lady who has purchased my cards in the past, had made a special request for me to include some sympathy cards in the basket.  So that's why today's card is a sympathy card.


This is the first time I've inked up my my Greenhouse Garden set.  I bought it because right now, through the end of April, it's 20% off.  Gotta love a great sale!  I really like how this turned out.  And I didn't even bother getting out my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and the flower lined up fairly easily.  Of course if you are into perfection, you'll want to use your SAMJ with this set.

The two challenges come from THE COLOR DARE blog and the STAMPING ROYALTY blog.  I really love these colors together.  Such a fresh, spring look.  Probably also has something to do with the fact that my favorite color is GREEN and this challenge doesn't have just one, but TWO greens in it!  Must be my lucky day!

WOW! All I can say is WOW!!! You really knocked this one out of the park, Krystal. Love the color combo from the one challenge and the layout from the other challenge. I'm sure your cards will fetch another pretty penny!
