Sympathy!

PP-Sympathy-wm

Happy Saturday everyone!

It's challenge time with the "crazies" over on the the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess Silke Ledlow has given us another fun challenge. International Earth Day is next week, so our challenge is to create a card project that has a tree on it.

My card today is actually a sympathy card using the new Paper Pretties Sympathy set! This is the type of stamp set that I am sure we all wish we never have to use, but unfortunately there are always times when you do need a set like this one.

I kept my card fairly simple! I got a new pad of designer paper recently and found this one with the tree which I thought would make a great sympathy card. I added some tiny rhinestones to the large flowers on the tree for added interest.
