The hardest thing in the world is to write a sympathy card. I recommend just being honest and personal.but if you are really stumped, perhaps one of these sympathy verses from the pens of others will help.
This sympathy card by Peggy Dircks uses only Night of Navy Ink on River Rock for a striking monochromatic look. In addition the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set, she used the Vintage Wallpaper Folder and the Elegant Butterfly Punch.

I'd like to CASE this card with the morning meadow set. Adore the color combo. Real Red and Crumb Cake. Would have thought it would be too bold for a sympathy card, but the "light" use of it makes it very beautiful.
