Less Is More....

You know the most difficult of cards I find to make is a Sympathy one. I just never think a card says the feelings that you have to put across.  I also hate doing them as it means someone has left us. :( 
I have followed the Challenge at Less Is More this week with 3 Shades of Green for this one.  
The inside is blank to write a wee thinking of you note.

  4. I agree completely, but you have created a beautiful card; it is very elegant in its simplicity & that makes it even more appropriate for such a sad occasion.
