Sweet Sympathy

Sympathy cards seem to always be a challenge for me because I want it to look good but I don't want it to be overstated or too busy.  So with this card I tried to go for the feel of a serene garden by using butterflies, leaves and a stamp with flourishes.  I kept the color palette on the quiet side with muted greens and off white but added a splash of sunshine with the yellow butterflies .  Turns out I was happy with this layout and changed it up a couple more times with different sentiments.

TGIF and have a happy happy weekend!


  1. This came out pretty Debi, luv that doily and those butterflies...

  2. Pretty card, sympathy cards are always hard to create, but when they look like urs it was worth it. TFS!

  3. Very pretty card Debi! Sympathy cards are hard for me too. I love yours - the doily is a perfect touch to your very serene looking card!
