With Sympathy


Like most stampers, I don't particularly like to make sympathy cards.  I find it much easier to make them though when I don't actually need to.  Which was the case with this card!  My card was inspired but this gorgeous photo inspiration challenge at JUGS...

And, the Less is More sketch...
