White space for sympathy

I was selling cards last night at our WEF at church to help raise money for Tearfund and discovered yesterday that I was low on stocks of sympathy cards. Sadly, people tend to buy these so that they have them in reserve should they need them, so I made a few to fill the gap. This card was one of them, simply a hammered white card blank (sorry, it doesn't look too white in the photo, but it is IRL), with the addition of a topper recycled from a card received. I like to leave sympathy cards clean and simple.

The insert says: with deepest sympathy.
