Black and Brown Sympathy

Hey There!  It's me I am back with another card to share with you.  I finished a card order, and it was half Thank You Cards and half Sympathy Cards.  Its often very difficult for me to create Sympathy Cards in the moment, and the person who ordered them realizes how difficult it is to find time to go to the store and pick one out in the moment.  

When I create sympathy cards I like to create something subtle and understated, and in more neutral colours.  I don't want something bright and cheerful as I really want it to mirror the current mood of the occasion for which they are receiving the card.

Additionally it makes me so happy that this card was created out of a lot of scraps

Here's the front of the card...

Here's the side of the card...
