This is a sympathy card that I made for a sweet friend. This is going waaaay outside of my comfort zone but I thought I would try to add some extra punched leaves, etc. to my card. Lots of punched branches and a sweet little bird is perched in the upper right corner...not sure if you can tell because my photo is not the greatest. Anyway, thanks for looking!
***Edited photo-much better now! :)

Katie, what a beautiful work you did for your friend, it will surely bring blessing. White cards...the worst the photograph, and the most gorgeous to make. I can only imagine how wonderful this is IRL. Your leaves play up the verse so well, and I adore that wee touch of blue! Love how you tucked in that precious lil bird! Your heart is all over this sweet friend, it shows! Hugs, and one for Baxie!

Oh, Katie, this weekend you are really showing your heart. with the get well and sympathy cards. I love white cards and you softened it up so nicely with a hint of color in the light touch sponging. Love the leaves framing your layers like a hug - just so beautiful!

Layer of white are my fave - the touch of color around your sentiment is perfect.....then those sweet leaves and cute little birdie. Sympathy cards are hard to make and hard to receive, I know this one will be a blessing to the one who receives it. A stunning and lovely card.
