I had to make a Sympathy card a few weeks ago, something I normally buy, but as I didn't really want to go into the local supermarket to shop for a card, I decided on something very simple and plain. I've used white linen card and cut a stitched oblong panel from the same card. The sentiment was stamped in Violet Blue Archival ink and I've lightly watercoloured some Tim Holtz Wildflower stems.
The Design Team have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, where you will also find all the challenge details.
It's been two weeks since I was last here! the internet went down and we had to wait for a replacement router and then DD moved house last week, so I was called into service - she's beginning to find bending difficult - well I suppose with twins she's allowed!
Take care and have a great week,
I think a lot of us have problems with neat and tidy! Your card turned out really gorgeous, as always. Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie
This really is beautiful - I think Sympathy cards must be one of the most difficult to make..or maybe that's just me. I expect that your daughter will be grateful for any help you can give, especially as due date approaches! Exciting times! Hugs, Chrisx
Gorgeous card Avril! I LOVE the neat and tidy-ness of it. Just stunning! Hope you have a super week! ((HUGS)) Helen
This turned out great Avril. It is beautiful and tasteful. I think a sympathy card would be difficult to make Yours shows the delicate and tasteful design that is needed for the occasion AND the challenge, too.
Sympathy cards are tough, but yours is perfect for the new TIOT challenge. And very beautiful. Happy new month AVril! Hugs-Erika
Difficult cards to make, your card is beautiful and has a serene, peaceful look.
Hey Avril! This is a gorgeous card - I do love clean and simple cards and this one is perfect!! Beautiful!

Love this and the colours are rather awesome. Great design.. Are you using the new blogger, New blogger is fine but now google wants me to prove I am not a robot and when I do over 60+ comments a day it drives me insane.... x
Always a difficult one to make but you certainly seem to have got to grips with this- it’s a serene result.
