Sympathy Card for Nicole

One of the members of my team at Beall's lost her grandmother last week. Nicole traveled to Texas over the weekend for the funeral and will be back in town today. I wanted to make a sympathy card for both her and her family to let them know my thoughts and prayers are with them. I think sympathy cards are so difficult to make, but am pleased with this one. It's difficult to see, but there is a slight shimmer to the body and wings. Thank you for your comments!

Recipe:
Stamps: SU Warmest Regards and Measure of Life
Ink: Versamark and Basic Brown
Paper: VV, Really Rust, More Mustard and Handmade
Extras: Ribbon

I so wish we could see this card in person. I can only imagine how great it looks up close and I agree sympathy cards are hard. Its just not something anyone looks forward to.
