I was inspired by this week's Paper Players challenge to use an animal or plant on a clean and simple card. I always think of plants and flowers for sympathy cards, and simple always seems to work better for me. To make this card, I used the lovely Discover Your Wings from Taylored Expressions and stamped directly onto some pretty patterned paper. I paired it with the simple sentiment from Embrace Beauty and tore the paper, inking the edges and adding a peek of complimentary patterned paper, finishing off with a soft ribbon.
