Sympathy Card

Today I have a sympathy card. I'm one of those cardmakers who makes sympathy cards as needed. I just can't bear to have a stash of them. I know some folks prefer to make them in advance of need, but that just doesn't work for me. I think they are hard to make under any circumstances, don't you? 

I decided not to color the stamped image. To me it appears more delicate that way. This time I shot the picture in my kitchen with backyard in sight through the window. My table is glass so you can see a slight reflection. It was slightly overcast so it was dark in the house. I needed as much natural light as I could get. Click on the image for a better view.

Supplies: Cardstock: My stash; Stamps: CTMH Lovely Lily, unknow wood stamp (sentiment); Ink: Memento Grape Jelly; Sizzix Dots embossing folder; pop dots.
