With Heartfelt Sympathy Card - Waltzing Mouse Challenge

Today's card is the second of the sympathy cards that I am creating for the woman at my church who sends cards to families in need of spiritual uplifting. I used the current Waltzing Mouse sketch for this one. I just happened to read the Waltzing Mouse blog and found out that this is their last sketch and they are shutting down their blog... so I guess this card is kind of a dual sympathy card - for the staff at Waltzing Mouse as well. I just found out about them and now this is the only challenge I ended up doing and they are disappearing on me! How's that for irony? I will certainly continue to use their older sketches, though, as I really like their style. 
So here is my second sympathy card - not too busy, a little understated, but just enough, I think, to get the message across. 


Supplies used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted: 

Paper: Avonlea Paper Pack, Slate Cardstock
Stamps: Words of Comfort
Inks: Slate
Accessories: Artiste Cartridge, Art Philosophy Cartridge, Green Mesh Ribbon (not CTMH), Slate Mini-Medley Collection, Foam Tape
