With Deepest Sympathy

Hello Dies R Us friends.  Lena here today sharing a sympathy card I made for a friend who recently lost her brother.  These are without a doubt the hardest cards for me to make. 

These are the dies I used to put this card together.

I began with a 5.5" x 5.5" square card and centered the Paris border on it. I normally use the grid on my craft mat to help me centre my card and then my dies on my card.

Now it's time to cut the other pieces. I used all five layers to make my flower and then a few flourishes for the leaves. I always tend to keep Sympathy cards on the plain and simple side and this one was no different.
Once the front of the card was made, I worked a little on the inside. I cut a mat of the same paper as the flower and adhered it to the card. Next I stamped the greeting with Memento Tuxedo Black ink
