The challenge of the week over at Papertrey Ink is for sympathy cards. I don't own a sympathy sentiment from PTI but it got me thinking. What is the message that you're really trying to send someone? To me this meant stating I was sorry about their loss and wanting them to know I'm there for them. I had the perfect sentiment for the later feeling.
I remember appreciating each and every card I received when my Dad passed away. There was an abundance of muted earth tone cards with flowers on them that looked like they were about to die as well. There were just one or two that had some color and helped brighten up a dark time and mood about the house. This is why I chose to use yellow and whimsical flower buttons and die cuts. I want this card to stand out in someones time of need to draw attention to the fact that I'm here for them if they need me.
