Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge 359

I for one am very pleased that this challenge has gone fortnightly as I wanted to do last week's sketch but ran out of time! I've noticed that quite a few challenges are fortnightly now and I quite like it as it gives me more time to play.
I'd spent quite a bit of time thinking about this card but even so, when it came time to make it, I kept changing my mind. Anyway, for better or worse, here it is.

The lotus bloom is stamped with Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum and half strength Wisteria Wonder and the stem in Mossy Meadow. Everything is SU except the sentiment and the lace, which I found in the bargain bin of The Warehouse for $2.97 on clearance, 4 patterns x 1 metre. A pretty good find, especially since they are cotton and will take colour.

I could have made this card anything but the colours seemed a bit sombre, so made it a sympathy card. I was perhaps a bit hasty, because looking at it in the photo, it doesn't look so sad!

Update: Delighted to have this card make the Top 3 Pick at Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge.
