Sadly, I needed to make a sympathy card . I used a very old stamp by Cherry Pie Art , a sentiment (MFT I think) and a stencil that I'd cut myself on my digital cutting machine.

I coloured in the birds using a Memento black pen - the most useful pen in the craft world. (Yes, even more useful than a white gel pen!).

Sorry that you had to make a sympathy card-- they're at the bottom of the list of what I like to make, but it always feels good to give them, because often one can do nothing else. Anyway... this is lovely and peaceful. Thank you for sharing this at Shopping Our Stash.
