Through the Trees Sympathy

I'm not real sure about this card. It is a sympathy card, to be given after the death of a father. Obviously, that is not a time for celebration, but I am thinking this card may be a bit too sombre. I think I'll ponder it a little longer...

List of Ingredients:

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze
Stamps: Through the Trees (PTI) and Garden of Life (PTI)
Ink: Not Quite Navy Classic Ink and Whisper White Craft Ink
Accessories: Crystal Effects (SU), Vintage Brads (SU), Theatre and Valet Ribbon Originals (SU), Mounting Foam (Kaisercraft), Sticky Strip and SNAIL adhesive.

Hope your weekend is peaceful!

(Blogged to: Triple J is playing, but I wasn't concentrating on what song it was...sorry).

Oh Sam I think it is perfect for a sympathy card. The trees are just FABULOUS and the brighter blue stops it being too sombre.

That is a gorgeous stamp!

Sam, this card is perfect, and I agree with Debbie, the shade of blue is quite bright making a lovely card for the occasion. I do think its hard to make a card for this occasion at any time but you did a great job of it.

I agree. It is beautiful and thoughtful Sam. Don't change a thing!

This is a gorgeous sympathy card. Just perfect. I love this PTI image. I wanted to buy that set too at one stage but I thought I better not start on a new range of stamps. Love how you have used it.

I think it is great for a sympathy card. Most of them are so sad looking. This says how you feel in a simple and elegant way.

I think it's lovely Sam. It's so hard making sympathy cards but that tree image is so peaceful and reflective - I think it's just perfect.
