Let's not be too sad.


Despite of the St. Valentine's day, I used this color challenge for a Sympathy card. Why? Well, recently a friend of ours lost her father and it is so painful to see people go through such a difficult time as it is, and around a holiday or a celebration it makes matter that much harder.

Sympathy cards can be hard to make as they carry a lot of feelings. I tried to keep the card away from being so heavy with the colors from the Pals Paper Arts challenge 239 and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketch challenge 173. Perhaps creating a card that has a touch of lightness to it, will help a suffering family during the loss of a loved one.
