Another Sympathy Card

I am not very good with making sympathy cards, but I had to make another one for a friend whose mother just passed away.  I always stress over making them- I'm never sure if it's appropriate.  I hope this one is okay:

I wasn't able to get a very good picture of it.  The patterned paper has glitter on the flower centers and I added Stickles to the center of the flowers on the images to match.
Here is the verse I put on the inside of the card:

Stamp:  Coneflowers digital image, Sympathy digital image (I'm not sure who these images are from)
Papers:  Old Olive, Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up), Neenah 80# white, patterned paper (K & C Company)
Accessories:  Copic Markers, Stickles, sponge


  1. Its a beautiful sympathy card- I think you hit the spot perfectly. I agree they can be so difficult- but I think the key is simplicity. Its the thought and love behind the card that shine through then.

  2. Such a beautiful card, Mary. Not just beautiful to look at - but the message is beautiful, too. Sorry for your friend's loss....

  3. You made a lovely card for this sad occasion, Mary. I think the inside verse is just perfect. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Your card is lovely, and your sentiment is perfect. I totally understand about the difficulty with a sympathy card. I just went through a similar experience, not sure if the yellow color that I used was appropriate. But I liked the card after looking at it for a bit, so decided to send it along, hoping it will provide a bit of sunshine in their grief. TFS. I'll be back to see your lovely cards.
