A Sympathy Card

I had to make a sympathy card for my Aunt this week.  Her husband died after many years of recurring cancer.  Whenever I need such a card, I always reach for my Monochrome Decoupage Sheets from Craft UK.  They are quick and suit the simplicity of a sympathy card so well.  The photo doesn't show the layers or detail very well, unfortunately.

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Penny's Paper Crafts - anything goes
Crafts & Me - monochrome
Paper Play - use a black base
AI Factory - anything goes
Fairy Tale - flowers
Marks Finest Paper - sympathy card
Challenge Up Your Life - clean & simple
One Stitch At A Time - as you like it
