Aud Sentiments Challenge - 18 July 2013 - Sympathy/Thinking of You

Today is the start of another challenge over at the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog.  This time the topic is "sympathy/thinking of you".  I know we all hate to make these kinds of cards but when someone is going through grief it is these cards and the words that we put inside that will mean so much.
This fortnight we are lucky to be sponsored by Robyn's Fetish.
For both of my cards I have used the Robyn's Fetish image called "bible".  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers and kept to very pale colours.  Personally I keep sympathy/thinking of you cards quite clean and simple as I don't think it's the right time to go all out on embellishments etc.
The backing papers I have used have all been given to me.  The cards have been finished off with seam binding ribbon (top card), dotty grosgrain ribbon (bottom card), Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiments and pearls.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything goes
One Stitch at a Time - Use a digi
Card Mania - Pearls and/or gems
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything goes
Anything Goes - Anything goes

I really like the layouts you used on these two cards - that creates detail that is quite interesting! I agree, you need to keep away from the frou-frou on a sympathy card. I like what you have done!
