"Sympathy and Encouragement"

Hello everyone! It's Monday which mean a new challenge at My Craft Spot. This week the challenge is "Hope is Rising" Create a sympathy/encouragement project. 
I made this sympathy card. It is a very simple card and sorry, no cricut cuts! I feel that with a sympathy card, the simpler, the better. I double matted this card in off white and brown. The inside off white mat I embossed using the Darice Tree folder. I embossed it off the side of the card for some interest. For the bow I used Vanilla Bean Crinkle Ribbon and added it across the corner of the card. To finish I stamped the sentiment on the outside as well as the inside from My Craft Spot's With Deepest Sympathy stamp set. 
I hope you will all play along this week! Please don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has created. Have a great day!
