Sympathy cards

My childhood neighboor, and the father of my best friend growing up, died today.
His name was Odd, and it feels realy sad that he passed away. I made to cards today. One for my childhood friend, and one for her mother. This is the front of the card. I cut out the ornamental leafs from the new Lite cart botanical. The paper is from the Luxury stack from DCWV. I got the paperstack yesterday and it is just lovely!.
Behind the leafs I have grey paper. The word Kondolerer was from Lyrical letters. It got on a bit crocked, and I did not manage to fix it before the glue dried. Oh well, it is hand made.
On the inside of the card I made a Dolphin form the Splish Splash cartridge. Odd was a seaman all his life, and it is said that Dolphins come to the aid of sailors that's in need. I used matte silver and grey paper. I stamped ornamental corners with weatered wood distress ink.

On the back is another cut from the botanical cartridge.
