Sympathy card

Morning, today's card is a sympathy card, not something I find easy to make. I think it is always difficult getting the tone right. I've kept this card very simple creating a ocean scene using torn paper for the waves, inks for the sky and two hand drawn birds. The colors seem to have come out a lot brighter in the photo than they are in real life. 



The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set.

Thanks for looking,
