Sympathy Cards

Seasons come and seasons seams right now it is a season of sympathy among our friends.  Sympathy cards are often thought to be difficult cards to make, and maybe they are...I personally find the expression of the feelings of my heart the hardest part.  There are feelings of sympathy as earthly ties are cut, feelings of joy for a life well-lived and feelings of hope and comfort as well. 

This first card is one that uses stamps from Inkadinkadoo and Prickley Pear.  I kept the color palette soft and added faux stitching and prima flowers for my embellishments.
This one uses a more masculine color palette and features images from Stampers Anonymous' Tim Holtz collection and sentiment by Stampendous.  I added distressing, distress inks, faux stitching and candi to this card.
