  • The “thinking of you” sentiment (always the “right thing to say” for a sympathy card) is from Sheltering Tree stamp set.

  • Simple and pretty.  I used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch to crop both ends of the tag.  It’s perfect for slipping through the Bermuda Bay Thick Baker’s Twine or other ribbon.

  1. great card! love the layout and the colors you chose. Nice to see a sympathy card with colors other than grey, brown or black. I also think with the sentiment you used, it could be used for a get well card or just to say you were thinking of them.
