With Deepest Sympathy

Hi everyone. Just a very simple card from me today, as I needed to make a sympathy card for my dad's neighbour who has sadly lost her husband. I always keep sympathy cards simple as I don't think it's appropriate to make them fussy. I always think a gentle watercolour flower is a good look for this type of sad occasion.

Stamp: Unity Stamps "Insightful Meadows"; (sentiment was computer generated);
Media: Marvey watercolour brushstroke markers;
Paper: Crafter's Companion "The Snowman" (yes I know, it's not a Christmas paper really, just a lovely soft abstract design!)
Supplies: Papermania shimmer dots; lace from The Ribbon Box; ribbon from my stash.

I have also entered this for only a few challenges as I don't like to go too mad with a sympathy card.
