With Sympathy

Hello there.

Today I am sharing a sympathy card with you. It's never really fun to share these types of cards. I hate to have to make them, but unfortunately, a friend we know lost their father this week due to cancer spreading in his bones.
I don't have much in the way of "sympathy" sentiments...but I quickly fixed that by ordering Amy R's Sympathy Sentiments.
For this card I used the "Life" set by PTI as well as a sentiment from "Scattered Showers" also from PTI.
I used Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum cardstock from SU and Elegant Eggplant ink from SU. I stamped the image once and then moved it over a little and stamped off the access ink to kind of give it a shadow type of effect or a more subdued look.
