Sympathy Card - Life is a Journey

I love that sentiment and it is so true, It is part of the Birds of a Feather stamp set.
I think the tree stamp by Art-Kure lends itself very nicely to the wording.
I used a brayer and a multi coloured ink for the background and stamped the tree in Versafine black onyx ink layered it all up with matching card stock and tied a ribbon and knotted is around the centre of the card, I found a little bird punch in my craft stash and punched the bird out of some black card stock.
Oops nearly forgot I used the cuttlebug to emboss the burnt orange card.
