Korin gave us a sketch that I thought was well-suited for a sympathy card. Maybe it is because I needed one :( They are the most difficult for me to do. As much as I tried to add the smaller panel with the sentiment on it, I elected to stamp the sentiment directly on the main bg by itself. Adding a smaller panel just seemed to make the card too busy.
I embossed the background stamp with black and cut it down in size to make a smaller panel. I just felt drawn to this as it just seemed to be calming. Maybe it is because our friends loves nature. I hope it comforts them, as they had to take their daughter off life support today. They are now just waiting.
Thanks so much for looking, I appreciate it.

Absolutely beautiful, Barb. I know how heart-breaking it is to even craft such a card under these sad circumstances. Your friends will know that you are feeling their loss too. A very sensitive and compassionate card.

Barb...you're like me....it doesn't take too much for me to think I've gone over the top. I think your choice was a good one. Your card is beautiful. That image is totally awesome....I've never seen it!

...sure itís got a catchy beat, but can you stamp to it?
