MFT Wednesday Sketch - Finally!

Oh my goodness, I was finally able to use one of the fabulous MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #59 and post my card in time!  I'm so excited to show you this card.  It started out as a birthday least, that was the idea.  However, I had just been talking to my Mom and a friend of hers at the RV Park in Miami had just lost her Mother.  That got me thinking about her and whether or not I should send a Sympathy card.  So the card, very gradually morphed into a sympathy card.  Thing is, the ladies is an avid she did it for a living before she retired.  After some playing and lots of doubt, here is the sympathy card that I came up with.
And, here is the inside....

It's definitely not a traditional sympathy card, but I'm okay with that.  This card feels more personal.  What do you think?
