Simple Sympathy Card

I think silhouette images work really well for sympathy cards - keep it simple and muted is usually my preferred method with these difficult cards.
This lovely lily stamp is from the new Say It (In Pictures) kit, and I combined with the sentiment from Say It (Again and Again).  Very simple.  The lovely patterned paper is from Carina Gardener's Victorian Art Collection. Mmmm.

Well... it;'s my last day at work tomorrow then my maternity leave begins. I am feeling very strange about it... will miss my kids. :(  But looking forward to not having to get up so early (for the next few weeks at least!)

This is gorgeous! Love the BG DP you chose to use with the fabulous image and the tied twine softens it wonderfully.

All the best in your last few weeks!! Joints get wobbly and ready for baby so hang in there :) Can't wait to hear what you have and see some pictures :)
