With Sympathy.

Some years ago I received an email from an Etsy customer pointing out how absurd was the tagging of one of my cards.
I actually added the "sympathy" tag to a card which was not meant for sympathy because I thought the word had the same meaning it has in Italian.
Stupid me not to have checked the dictionary!
I never managed to make a proper "for sympathy" card since I love cute whimsical images and they seem to be too much for such a delicate moment.
Luckily enough, I saw a stamp in Eat Cake Graphics shop which immeditely gave me the inspiration to make a sympathy card, poetic enough and not too sad or funny:
She is Jessica Holds a Flower: I colored her with Copics and mounted her on a small card with background papers from Graphic45. I  wanted to keep the card light and fresh, I love the smile on Jessica's face and the windy atmosphere, which for me is perfect for a sympathy card.
Isn't she cute?
