Sympathy Cards are Tough!

Hello to my stamping friends!  I've been doing a little stamping lately.  Unfortunately, I've needed a couple of sympathy cards, which I always find to be challenging.  You're never sure whether a handmade card holds enough weight to be appropriate for a sympathy card, but I feel if you keep it simple, you can never go wrong.  I love how this sympathy card turned out.  Both stamp sets are from Papertrey and I got the idea for this card from their website.  The flowers are from the set called "Botanical Silhouettes" and the greeting is from the cutest stamp set called "Signature Greetings II."  The ink is Certainly Celery, Black, and Daffodil Delight from Stampin' Up!  This is going to become a "go-to" card for me.  Simple, but elegant - my favorite kind!

Thanks for stopping by!  Tomorrow I'll be posting an adorable birthday card!  Have a great  day!

Such a lovely card Penny. I'm going to have to remember the "simplicity" thought when it comes to sympathy cards. This would be lovely to receive!
