Simple Sympathy Card

Well, my 22 month old is sick today so I took the day off. I thought I'd take advantage of naptime and make something pretty.

I have never been good at these kind of cards because I never really felt that I had the right stamps/sentiments to make it. Anyhoo, since I purchased Out on a Limb from Papertrey, I thought I'd be able to do something appropriate.

I used Palette Inks on some shimmery vellum to make the tree which I undermounted in the frame I cut out. The patterened paper is chatterbox. The ribbon was a scrap that I saved (now I know why I save these teeny bits of ribbon) that matched perfect. I wanted something neutral and understated.
I distressed the edges with the Basic Grey precision file set--uh LOVE...wondering why I didn't buy that sooner. This turned out just how I wanted and I won't feel weird giving it away whenever I may need it.
