Sheltering Tree Sympathy Card

It's interesting with creativity how what you are feeling on the inside can be released into your art and such an incredible outlet. I found out some sad news about some close friends this week. I didn't know what card I was going to be making and this is the card that came out of me. I feel it has projected the sadness and empty feelings I have inside from hearing the news. I find craft such incredible therapy and being able to release stressful situations this way is so good for the heart, mind and body. Here is my card -

Doesn't it just emit sadness? The tree with no leaves and no embellishments to soften the card exposes some raw feelings and emotions.

Once I made the card I had NO idea what sentiment to use - I thought that this one was appropriate as it can work for sympathy but many other stressful situations that can come up.

These colours are such wintery, sad, stormy, emotional colours.

I do feel good about being able to release some of my sadness into this card - of course it won't remove it but I feel like it has helped me express and deal with it. Processing information can be difficult when it is something we don't expect to hear.
