Simply with sympathy

A simple card that says all it needs to say. I always think that sympathy cards should be understated rather than overdone. The stamp on the right hand side had a bit of inking missing at the top, but I don't think it matters as it adds to its wispy nature. These were then heat embossed with detail clear.

Two tone background stamped with Penny Black sparklers inked with memento rich cocoa plus a sentiment stamp from Hobbycraft.

This is for:

Penny Black Saturday July challenge: flowers
Sparkles 94: thinking of you or a sympathy card
Pile it on 132: something beginning with S
Heartful stamping (stamped blessings): heat embossing + a stamp
Stamping sensations July: anything with flowers
Penny Black and more at Allsorts July: for the boys (suitable to send to a man, I think)
