Everything Will Be Ok...

Losing a loved one is never easy, no matter what the circumstances may be.  But when a loved one has been suffering, it is almost a blessing when their time with us is up.  One of my friends lost her mom last week after battling a long illness.  I am hoping my friend finds comfort in knowing that her mom is no longer suffering and is finally at peace. 
I found a simple sketch over at Clean and Simple Stamping and I thought it would make for a perfect sympathy card. 
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Perfect Plum, Whisper White
Ink ~ Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Lucky Limeade, Always Artichoke
Stamp Sets ~ Stippled Blossoms, Pursuit of Happiness
Other Supplies ~ Simply Scored Scoring Tool
It's not very often that I create a card with no added embellishments (unless you count the scoring ;)) and I am really happy with how this turned out.  Very simple, but pretty...just what I wanted for this card. 
This is the first time I've used a sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping, but I will be back for sure!
Be sure to check back on Thursday for the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop! 
Happy Stamping!
