Water Lilies

Sundays are a day to rest and refocus, so I thought it appropriate to post this card, made with a lovely water lily from this month's TSOL club set, froggy2love.  The set is filled with cute images and funny sayings, but this particular image can be made into a quite elegant card!  I love it when you can work a set that way!  You can get lots more inspiration from the TSOL gallery, and since TSOL is sponsoring this week's CPS sketch, you can check out the cards there too!  Mine will be posted on Tuesday, as usual!

Lots of "white space" and the soft colors of this card create a tranquil, peaceful atmosphere that would be perfect for a variety of occasions.  I often delay choosing a sentiment to stamp until the occasion arises...such is the case with this card.  It would've made a nice get well or thinking of you card, but I will be sending it as a sympathy card.  My friend recently lost her mother, who lived in a pretty house on a peaceful pond, so she'll appreciate this lovely lily!
