My card for my very dear friend Mavis.

This is a sympathy card for the family of a very dear friend of ours who sadly passed away at the weekend.  This is always a difficult style of card to make and I hope that Mavis would of appreciated my efforts.  My thoughts go out to her family and friends at this most difficult time.
I used some flittered paper from a MCS (TM) paper pack that I bought as a TSV from QVC recently.
The image is from a lovely stamp set from DO Crafts (TM) that is just perfect for these difficult circumstances.  It is difficult to tell but the cross image is coloured in with Flex Markers (TM).
The sentiment stamp is a Papermania (TM) stamp.
I added a raffia bow and a heart embellishment which I glittered with Imagination Crafts (TM) Candy Floss Sparkle Medium.
I also added a little Sparkle Medium to the centre of the lillies.
