I always have a difficult time with Sympathy cards.  If someone is already in pain, I like a simple or even funny card to help brighten their day or let them know I am thinking of them.  If the event is already somber, why continue with that same tone?  I like the simple and light color and design of this card.

Featured Stamp Set: Avant Garden & Flourishing Phrases

The base layer is Mint Macaron with a layer of Tip Top Taupe and Whisper White.
Run your Whisper White layer through your big shot using Petal Burst Embossing Folder.
Attach your layers so far to your base.

For the next round of layers, start with Mint Macaron and add Tip Top Taupe and Whisper White.
On your Whisper White piece, stamp the Avant Garden flower in Mint Macaron first.  The whole flower- stem, leaf and flower all in Mint Macaron ink.
Clean your stamp and add another flower of Tip Top Taupe ink (I like it stamped off first)
Next, stamp your sentiment in Tip Top Taupe ink and assemble your layers.
Finish it off with a few wraps of twine.
Attach to your whole card using dimensionals.
