It feels as if I've had to make too many sympathy cards just recently...that is no fun at all.  I do put a lot of thought into them though to make them special for the person receiving it.  This one I used a file from the Silhouette Store that I purchased and was worried it would be too difficult but it wasn't and I'm thrilled with the way it came out.

The flowers and patterned paper are made with SU! cardstock...Calypso Coral, So Saffron, and Pear Pizzazz.  The base is SU!'s kraft cardstock called Crumb Cake.  I just couldn't fit a sentiment on the front so I just added it inside, stamped a sentiment, and called it good.  I actually have another sympathy card to make today and then I can move onto more fun things!! 

I hope you have a fantastic day!

Lorie, what a beautiful card. I am making quite a few sympathy cards myself as an order for a friend, so yours caught my eye right away. I have a couple of these files and have yet to cut one, thanks for the inspiration.
I also scrolled down and saw the post about Tara, I am so very sorry. No matter their age, it is still hard to let them go.
Here's wishing you a great day,
