MC Apr - Joy Fold - Song of Solomon

This is another interesting card fold that is the challenge at No Time to Stamp, written by Beate on Split Coast Stampers. My size is different.
I also love all kinds of colors so picking a favorite is almost impossible. So I let the next challenge choose for me and that was the one with Crushed Curry as one of the colors in Stampin with Stacey.

This card is also for Created By Hand with a theme of Memorial Day, so I figured someone could use an angel to lift their spirits up.

If you've been reading my blog lately, you'll know I love the Recollections "Spice Market" cardstock pack and used the yellow from there. And with those two elements, the rest fell into place.

I also used a rubber stamp quote from
Quietfire Design that I don't think I've used before, but since this was a card that was working it's way toward a sympathy card, I thought it was appropriate.

It covers these challenges:
No Time to Stamp #136 A Joy Fold card
Stampin with Stacey Act #26 Color Combo Whisper White, Basic Gray, Going Gray & Crushed Curry,
Crafty Ann's Challenge #13 Recipe 1 digi image, can use up to 3 colors to color image, & 3 flowers (2 sakura & flower charm - the other flowers are part of the digi stamp)
