The Next Level Sketch (Wk 5) - A Sympathy Card

Hi there!
I was asked to make a sympathy card so I used the fabulous sketch from The Next Level this week. I have been wanting to participate in The Next Level challenges since it started and this has been my first chance to get round to doing one. I have to say it's never an enjoyable card to make when it's a sympathy one. So I kept the image very simple - there was an additional request for the card to have a 'fly' (or as close to one as I could get) so I stamped this one which I think is a bee, but oh well, it seems to work!
I kept the inside pretty simple and just stamped this sentiment which complements the one on the front of the card. The sympathy set is from Gina K Designs 'Comfort & Peace'.
Well, it's a rainy day here in Ottawa so we're taking it easy today and I'm enjoying watching the Andy Murray v Andy Roddick semi-final at Wimbledon!

I hope you're all enjoying whatever you're doing today! Thanks for coming by today and leaving a much appreciated comment!
Hugs,
