Penny Black, Prima, Hero Arts and Freshly Made Sketches


I needed to make a sympathy card - a co worker lost her grandfather - so this will be the card from her fellow coworkers.  I wanted the card to be a little masculine (the tree) but wanted some softer colors for her.

The card is based on the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.


The paper is from a 6 x 6 pad by Prima (Madeline).  The tree stamp is by Penny Black and the sentiment is from Hero Arts - I may replace the sentiment - looks crooked to me - probably is.  The ribbon was given to me by my friend Robin - love it.

Well time to go to bed and get up and go to work.  Hopefully this is my last week of the hard push.

So beautiful and serene and yet masculine enough to really show your sympathy. Great job!
