Deepest Sympathy

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday wherever you are right now. We have just finished Dinner and I'm about to start some crafting :)
This is a card I did for a friend who recently lost his mother. Of course this is always a difficult time and for me it was a first regarding Sympathy cards as I have never attempted to make one before.
I tried to use light subtle colours and wanted to keep the card quite soft and simple.
I thought the white rose background paper was perfect to just add warmth and depth to the card.
I did add a beautiful poem inside too and I know the recipient really appreciated it :)
After searching through blogs for ideas I come across one  on the wonderfully talented Becca's blog and took inspiration from it.
Thank you for visiting me today :)
