Focus on Sympathy Cards

Sympathy cards are some of the hardest to make, especially when you NEED one. So I thought it would be a good idea to make one now, while, thankfully, I don't need it. I'm thinking of making a few more like this one in a variety of colors to have on hand, just in case.

While creating sympathy cards, I try to keep a few things in mind... simple, soft, floral or inspired by nature (trees, leaves, etc).

This card is also for the StampNation challenge, which happens to be "Sympathy Cards". Hop on over and check it out!! Now is the perfect time to join, the Occasions Mini Virtual Open House starts on Wednesday!!
