A Sympathy Card

Today I am sharing a clean and simple card I made for my friend
when she lost her Mum. I really like using the branch and bird dies, and thought
they would be perfect for this type of card.
The items I have used are:-
Memory Box - Grove Branch 
Memory Box - Resting Birds
Couture Creations Embossing Folder - Tied Together
Carl Daisy Punch
Woodware Grass Leaf Punch
Sentiment - Computer generated
