Simple, Yet Elegant Sympathy Card

Ask any scrapper what she/he considers the hardest card to create, and I bet many of them would tell you a sympathy card.  Birthdays, thank-you's, holidays... Those are all fun cards to design.  No one ever wants to have a reason to work on a sympathy card... me included.  They are almost always last-minute cards and usually take some time to create because you want to get them "just right".

The following design was no different.  I needed four cards for my cousins who lost their mother after a long road of illness.  While I was not happy with the occasion behind creating these cards, I am pleased with how pretty they turned out and plan to make a batch of similar cards for future use.
