With Sympathy

 Unfortunately I seem to need more sympathy cards the older I get. I really like this one since I find its harder to do masculine ones. I used birds from firecracker Designs, grass from Gina K, water from scenescapes and the tree from Tim Holtz. The background I embossed with a crackle embossing folder.  

I'm entering this into:
Fab 'n Funky: use a sentiment
Digi Choosday: anything goes
Inspiration Station: photo challenge (The photo as well as the colours are serene and inspired peace and sympathy)
Inkspirational: emboss your background. 

Stamps: Firecracker Designs, Scenescapes, Gina K, Stampin up sentiment
Paper: whisper white, basic black, dusty durango
Other: stampin up inks, tim holtz diecut tree, crackle embossing folder
