Quietfire With Sympathy

I think Sympathy cards are so hard to make.  This one was especially hard as it was for a friend who lost her husband to cancer.  I wanted a card that showed I cared and took time to make.  After a couple of different starts, I ended up with this layered and flowered version.  

I made my white layers using the Sue Wilson Spanish Seville Die collection and popped up each layer.  I then die cut the With Sympathy metal dies twice - out of lavender and then darker purple card stock.  I glued them and created a shadow effect by offsetting them just a bit.  I then raided my Wild Orchid Flowers stash to created my floral sprays.
