Subdued Sympathy



I always struggle with making sympathy cards. I'm pretty pleased with this one. Nice and soft tones, and the image is very calming. My friend's Mom passed away Sunday after a long battle with cancer. I followed a sketch at Diva Coffee Break Designs. It's a nice layout, that went very well with not over doing a sympathy card. I used a paper pack sent to my by my sweet friend, Tammi. I even decorated the inside of the card. Not something I normally do, but it really does look nice. I used a stamp set from SU for the main image. The sentiments are from Paper Trey Ink's sympathy set, as well as the butterflies, and grass. I used Tim Holtz ink pads, vintage photo, and tea.
Supplies: nesties, copics, stickles, SU cardstock, SU Peace Within, PTI With Sympathy.
Thanks for stopping by.
