Painted Poppies, Peaceful Moments, Sympathy Card, Stampin' Up!

I found this pretty card on Pinterest and I just had to make it. I LOVE sponging. I think it was one of the first "techniques" in stamping that I learned. I think I sponged all the edges the cards I made for months!!!  I get carried away sometimes! LOL  You can see the original card here.  I did change the wording.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Mango Melody. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. 

I cut two 4" x 5-1/4" pieces of Whisper White card stock.  I die cut a circle in the upper middle of one of the pieces.  I used that piece as my template. I taped the two pieces onto my work surface and then I sponged on some Daffodil Delight. I did cover the entire circle with it.  

I used Mango Melody on the top and middle of the circle.  And then I colored the upper part of the circle using Calypso Coral ink.  I did lightly bring down a little of both colors into the Daffodil Delight.  I only did that a couple of times and lightly.  

I left the template on and then stamped the flowers from the "Painted Poppies" set using black Memento ink.

I removed the template and stamped the words. They are from the "Peaceful Moments" set using black Memento ink.

I taped the Whisper White piece to the Mango Melody piece. I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card and the card was done. As quick and easy as that. 

I just love the sponging.  I will try not to make all my cards this week with sponged images!!!  I'll try!! LOL

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
Wanda
