Sympathy card!

Good evening Lovelies and a very warm welcome to new followers! I hope everyone is enjoying a splash of spring? I do hope it lasts!

I've made a sympathy card for a friend who has just lost her husband! He was elderly and had been ill for a long time! A sad loss but in many respects a blessing!

I used Linen texture card by Papermill direct mounted onto 6x6 card base! I scored two lines, masked then used Pan Pastels to create the coloured panel, the tulips are from Lavinia Stamps, the sentiment was £1 from Hobbycraft the butterfly is a spellbinder die and a pinch of white Fran-tage for some texture! Oops I've just noticed in the photo that it's not stuck down properly, I must make sure it is before I send it! A very simple card took only about 10 minutes. It's not easy trying to get a sympathy card right! I didn't want it to be too somber but also not too jolly either, I think I have it right? What do you think? I appreciate your comments xxx
