Sympathy cards are so hard for me to make. I realized this a couple of months ago when I had to make this card for a friend of ours who lost her mom. I found that I didn't really have any appropriate stamp sets for this type of occasion and had to really scour my collection to find something that would work. Thank goodness I had this set, Treasure Life, as I think it ended up making a particularly nice card.
I don't usually decorate the insides of cards this much, but I didn't like the look of all the brads from the Edge Anchors on the inside. Usually my philosophy on the brads showing on the inside is--"the recipient will know it is hand-made." However, in this case it just looked tacky, so I covered them up!
