1 Sketch, 2 Sympathy Cards (SCS261)










Using the above sketch from Splitcoast Stampers, I created two sympathy cards.  One is slightly more masculine than the other, but I think either one could easily be given to a man or a woman.

The idea for the clock as the shape of the tree top came from a card I saw made by Melissa Phillips.  I was so inspired to "attempt" to use her idea on my card.
