Oct 6th Sympathy Card

It's amazing how you can make such close friends and be worlds apart in the world of crafting!!  My crafting best friend lives in England.  We met being on the same DT.  It's been absolutly amazing finding out how much we have in common!!  We are both physically challenged, so crafting has brought us some sort of sanity.  That and emailing each other to talk about all kinds of things.  Well, now one of her friends that has the same disease that she has has died, so I made her this card.  I wanted to keep it simple.  The papers are from Bazzill, rubon sayings-MME, and the flowers are stickons from Stickopotamus "Irises".  I wanted to wait until she got it before I posted it on my blog...only problem is that it takes awile to send a card from Texas to England...
Here's the inside...
