Lovely as a Tree

Sympathy cards are to me that one crucial occasion when your card needs to be perfectly balanced and understated.  Nature stamps such as trees and flowers work perfectly for these cards as a subtle focal point.  As this card needed a more masculine feel, I went with a tree versus flowers.  

 There are many great sets available - my two faves being Sheltering Tree and this one - Lovely As a Tree.  I used my Stampin' Write markers to colour the image (crushed curry, chocolate ship, soft suede and old olive) and stamped my sentiment (from Better Together - another gem if you don't have it) in Early Espresso.

 The leaf DSP is from the Delightful Daisy series and the woodgrain is from Coffee Break.  I made this card both with an Old Olive base and Pear Pizzazz.
