Well, recently a friend of mine lost her husband and I wanted to get something out to her ASAP, so I came up with this. It's a little softer looking in person because the "shadow" of the flowers is a soft blue and the gray brings down the harshness of the black.... but still conveys the sympathy theme.
ALSO, this is where YOU come in - I'd love to have people send cards to her from all over to help ease her grief because her world is completely upside down right now. She and her husband just purchased a bowling alley last year and have put all they have into it, and her husband was the one who ran it full time. She has no children, so her husband was her entire world for more than 25 years. My heart just goes out to her.... So if anyone is interested in assisting by sending a card her way, please email me and I'll send you her address. Thanks so much.
Here's the card I made:
