Sympathy card

It's been a while since I've posted and unfortunately it has to be a sympathy card for a fellow scrapper/golfer friend's Mother-in-Law who recently passed away. These times are always sad, but seem even more so when they occur during the holidays.

I opted to create a very simple card using what I thought were calming colors. The background was created by stamping onto a piece of whisper white card stock using a three-step stamp (although it doesn't have to be used as such, can be used individually). I cut off two rows of the stamping and adhered to the top and bottom of the card front leaving enough room for the sentiment and that was it. I'm happy with the end results...what do you think, would love to hear from you.

Nancy great CAS card and the design pattern and colors are lovely. I know Michele/Brian will appreciate it too.
I saw this set and wasn't sure about it, but your card is lovely and I was not aware of the triple stamping to it. Can't wait to see what other patterns you create. Very nice. Hugs.

Lovely card, Mom! The soothing colors, clean layout and geometric pattern are perfect on a sympathy card for a couple. Great triple stamping job too! I'm sorry to hear of Michele's loss. What a way to start a new year. I'm sure they will appreciate your hand-made sentiment. love, Nance
