Hi there ribbon lovers.  Today I have a sympathy card to share.  I find sympathy cards to be difficult to make and I like to keep them kind of simple.  I think this one fits the bill.  I topped the card off with a pretty bow I made with ribbon and string from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
9-28-16-1I was shooting for a CAS look, and for me this is pretty ‘clean and simple’.  I did use multiple layers but I kept a clean background with the pretty leaf inclusion paper.  I stamped the sentiments and butterflies right on this artist paper.9-28-16-2

The pretty die is the Cherry Blossom die from Cheery Lynn Designs and I think it’s perfect for this card.
