With Sympathy

Aren't these the worst cards to make, my Mums friend has just died of lung cancer and my mum asked me for a card to send to her husband.

Well I don't have any Sympathy images so this is made from two different stamps, the arch has different flowers in the center so I cut them away and put some Lilies there instead. I have just kept the card clean and simple.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:-
