Default Need advice on sad card

I want to make a card for a friend that just found out her cancer came back and its spread to her liver. I am having a very hard time getting started on this card because it is such a sad situation. Usually I'm making birthday cards or other fun cards...even sympathy cards aren't too this bad. I don't know what colors to use or if I should make it in a way to cheer her up or just be a gentle "thinking of you" card. Any ideas?

A cheery thinking of you card saying that you are there for her whatever she needs.

Do you have any flower stamps, animal stamps. Make a pretty card or a cute card?

Write inside something like I am thinking of you. Love you. I am always here for you.

Something for the heart.

I like to use a bonsai tree image--it is a sign of life. You can google and find a free image to use. I would either say thinking of you, or praying for you (if she's religious).
