A Pair of Sympathy Cards

I needed two sympathy cards - one feminine and one masculine. I used this week's Color Throwdown #162 colors (Pool Party, Barely Banana, Creamy Caramel and Early Espresso) for my palette and made both cards using My Mind's Eye's Stella and Rose - Hattie collection.

The Tulip stamp on the first card is from The Angel Company and the Many Tears (SD021) sentiment on the second card is from Stamp Camp - this is one of my all time favorite sympathy sentiments (you can click on the photo to see it larger).

The layout I used for both cards is based on this month's Sketch for you to Try.

Thanks for stopping by!
