Sympathy card

This week's colour challenge on Less is More is to make a card with lots of

White space but not  WHITE 
I had difficulty coming up with an idea for this as I don't often use coloured backgrounds.  Having used this American Crafts card for another challenge I realised it would work well as a background - unfortunately the photo does not do justice to the colour which is more turquoise in real life.  I tried to keep the card CAS but added some interest by machine stitching around the panel.

Materials used:-
Die - Lifestyle crafts flowers
Background stamps - Clarity stamps aliums
Sentiment - Woodware
Inks - archival aquamarine and Colorbox celadon
American crafts coloured card

I am also entering this card into CAS on Sunday where challenge #80 is flowers.

Thanks for visiting my blog - I really appreciate your comments.  Margaret
