With Sympathy

This is one of my most favorite cards I've made in a very long time.  Unfortunately, it was not for a happy occasion as I had a co-worker pass away a few weekends ago from cancer.  I had worked with her for 10 years and she was a great person who loved her job.

I used the FTL94 sketch for this card and just left off one of the flowers.  

Our baseball trip is almost over, the boys lost this morning so we're waiting for the closing ceremonies tonight before we head home tomorrow morning.
