Sympathy Card

A friend of mine has just passed away!!!
Here is a card i made this morning!! As the funeral will probably be next week !!
The background is mirror card cut on a nellie snellon die. Quickutz butterfly
The sprigs are marianne creatables and the background has been embossed using a cuttlebug embossing plate, the sentiment printed off word using a grey text in script !!
The verse inside reads:-

Don't think of her as gone away -
Her journey has just begun
Life holds many facets
The Earth is only one
Just think of her as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years
Think how she must be wishing
That we could know today
How nothing but our sadness
can really pass away
And think of her as living
In the hearts of those she touched
For nothing loved is ever lost-
And she was loved so much.

I'm so sorry for your loss. This card will definitely help to bring a spot of happiness to the family. When I lost my mom I remember that the cards I received really made me feel less alone. You did a beautiful job.
