Sunset/Sunrise Sympathy

This card was created a while ago and has been sitting in my "stash".  It just happened to suit the "Ways to Use It" challenge at Splitcoaststampers. I titled this Sunset/Sunrise Sympathy based on a conversation had many, many years ago with a friend's mother regarding an image (bare trees) on a memorial card (the cards received when paying respects at a funeral home). An individual had commented that the image of the trees was very depressing and emphasized death/dying. My friend's mother responded that she saw the image not as a representation of death but, rather, as a tree seen in Spring before leafing -- a rebirth. So, this card image could be viewed as the sun setting on this (earthly) journey and simultaneously rising for the journey ahead.  All a matter of one's perspective, I suppose. The images used for this card are from the stamp sets Heartfelt Sympathy and Upsy Daisy by Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!
