Sharing in your Sorrow

Hello!  Today I have a sympathy card to share.  I'm at the age where all my friends are starting to lose their parents.  I've had four friends this month alone who have lost a parent, so I have unfortunately had to make a lot of sympathy cards.  We were joking in our Sunday School class 'Were next!', meaning, we are the next generation to go.  I know some people would consider it crude to joke about death, but when your a believer and you know the wonderful future heaven holds for you, you don't need to fear death.  Death is not the end for a believer, but only the beginning.  However, even if one knows their loved ones are in a better place, they still miss them here on earth and I therefore hope my sympathy cards bring them some comfort.

I like to keep sympathy cards very simple, so I chose a CAS layout from the Clean and Simple blog.  My image and sentiment are from retired Stampin Up! 'Thoughts and Prayers'.  

 I put green Flower Soft on the leaves to add some detail to this simple card.  A ribbon and bow are my only embellishment.
Have a great day!  Amy
