Sypathy Card

I've been saying for the longest time that I need to make some sympathy cards.  And truth be known, I still need to make a lot of sympathy cards to have on hand.  But I did make ONE last night.  I used a sympathy sentiment from Daydream Designs' - God's Comfort Sentiments Set which is just one of several lovely sentiments in this versatile set.  I'm hoping to use the set again this week to make some "prettier" and more serious-looking sympathy cards, and print some of the bigger sentiments on the inside of the cards.  But for now, I made this little card.
 

This card was made with Simple Stories and JilliBean Soup papers, a Bugaboo flower image, some buttons, seam binding, and the Daydream Designs Sentiment.  I'm entering it in the following challenges:
