Sympathy Card

Good Wednesday Afternoon!!!
This is my very first sympathy card I have ever made. Unfortunately I have needed them in the past but I never wanted to make one. I always felt more comfortable letting Hallmark do it! I decided to just bite the bullet and get the Thoughts and Prayers set. I loved all the sentiments and the tree is one of my favorite images! This came together quicker and easier than I thought it would. I wish I didn't need these in my stash...but I do so I guess I will be making a few more. I colored the tree with my chocolate chip and mellow moss markers. I was super impressed with myself after I was finished the card I realized I am capable of making a card that looks nice without ribbon! I didn't know it could be done! ;)
