Clean and simple sympathy card

the title says it all. I needed to make a card  using Taken with Teal and white cs.  that's all. When it came time to pick out a sentiment, I realized that a friend of mine's Mom had just passed away and this would definitely make a pleasant sympathy card. If there is such a thing as pleasant sympathy- NOT! Used my new pendant from Spellbinders, Fleur de lis. Think you all might get tired of seeing this die? I love it and am so glad that I bought this and not labels four. (which I will buy next shopping trip as I have another J's gift card burning a hole in the bottom of my purse). The paper is from SU, Autumn Meadow and the ink  is, of course, Taken with Teal. I used a scrap sample from the fleur de Lis borderabilies to use as a stencil for the sponging on top of the card and the two bottom corners.

Thanks for coming by!

I love this die, you are making me "need" to order it, lol, I was just looking for an excuse anyway! This card is so pretty, I'm sure it will bring much comfort to your friend. The stenciling is a wonderful touch.
