I've been rather lucky in my life and have had minimal need for condolence cards. Recently someone very dear to me suffered an unexpected loss, so I thought I would make a card for them. For this card I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches 128. It's a rather simple sketch, so I thought it was perfect for the card I wanted to make.
I wanted to keep the card simple, but with a little bit of spring colour in there so that it wouldn't be too depressing. I needed one card with a greeting in Finnish and one in Swedish (long story...) so I printed the sentiments on my computer. Other than that, it's rather simple with some stamping, some punching and a big bow.
