It's never a joyful time when you have to make sympathy cards.
With that being said, I'll leave this post simple with just a recipe.
I used a chocolate backing and added a Tan and gold background from a DCWV stack
I tool sheer chocolate ribbon and folded it top to bottom on both sides of the card. In the center I used the tree from jaded blossom's simple sayings. The sentiment is also from jaded blossom.
I used a grey base card stock and added a simple background from DCWV which already had the felt flowers in the corner. I then took grey here ribbon and cross crossed it at the top of the card. I topped that with solid grey ribbon an added a sentiment in the center of the ribbons.
