Thinking of you

Like a lot of people, I have a really hard time making sympathy cards.  This is a card that I made for a dear friend who just  recently lost her mom.  I wanted to keep it simple while conveying the message that we are thinking of her.  

Sentiment is from Hero Arts and patterned paper is from MME, Cowboy paper pad.

I will enter this card into two challenges:  A Blog Named Hero, Freestyle challenge and CASE Study Challenge Blog, 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop.
