Pomegranates Galore!

Today's Color Challenge on SCS was to use Purely Pomegranate, Kraft, and White. I had a request for some sympathy cards, so I went for it! (By the way, if anyone ever needs custom-made cards for any occasion, I am taking orders!)

This sketch came from Kim (from MFT's). I love the design and am going to try to remember to use it again sometime! The floral set is by Lizzie Anne Designs. I used a Copic marker to add "pomegranate" petals, and a white Prismacolor Pencil to add more color contrast.

The sentiment is from a set by Clearly Wordsworth (Rose Border) and can be found at Rubber Soul.Here is a view of what the card looks like when you open it.

I've never used acetate, but I had these new rub-ons by K&Co (Wild Saffron collection) that I really wanted to try out. I used a transparency sheet and adhered it over the polka-dot printed paper (from the same line).

The sentiment is also from Clearly Wordsworth (Heart Sing set)

And... lastly, here is a simple card made from stamps by Kim Hughes (found at Cornish Heritage Farms). The sentiment is by... yes, you guessed it! -- Clearly Wordsworth! (see a pattern here?) It's actually from a Christmas set. The original sentiment reads 'comfort and joy'... so I just inked up the part that I needed. The set is called 'Winter Wonderland'.

So what do you think? Too simple? Does it need something???
