I don't know if you have this problem or not, but I find sympathy cards hard to make.  I thought I would make a card that could be used for support as well as other occasions.  Plus, I don't always want to stick to just using flowers.

To make the card, I used three different background stamps.  Two you saw yesterday (the sky and the tree line).  This time I added some mountains for extra scenery.  I paired the stamps with various shades of Impression Obsession ink.  The inks are nice because there are light, medium and dark shades that are meant to work together to give you a gradient of color.  The teal theme was chosen because my nearest mountains are the Blue Ridge Mountains.

To finish the card, I chose one of my favorite sympathy phrases and stamped it in the darkest shade.

Thanks so much for stopping by during the hop!
