Sympathy Card for a Coworker

Not sure I like making sympathy cards, but I guess they are a fact of life.   I have been wanting to try making one of these cards. Not sure of there name but I love the look.   I have seen a couple videos in the past and went off my memory so I think I did correctly.   I cut all my pieces out first so that I liked all the layers together first.  Then I placed all the white pieces on top of each other and stamped 3 different flower stamps from Flower Doodle by Sizzix and Stephanie Benard.  I then taped all the white layers to the matching layers of gray shimmer paper by DCWV.  After this I matched each layer up so that the images lined up with the layer prior.  This stamp set came with a die set so I stamped and cut out a flower in some pink paper to layer on the front of the card.  The sentiment in the middle comes from a sentiment set from Stephanie Benard's Stamps of Life.  I used the same paper to layer on the inside and used a prayer verse from Stephanie Benard's Stamps of Life set for the inside of the card.   I am really happy I bought these sets this week, perfect timing I guess.  Thanks for looking.
