Sympathy cards are really difficult.
I was a bit stumped, so I used the sketch from the TGIF challenge blog (again)
I hope you like my entry:

I kept my colouring really subtle-Slate grey cardstock, framed by Early espresso, basic grey scalloped matt, and a whisper white sentiment on the stitched oval. The bird was coloured by the new watercolour pencils, in smokey slate, early espresso. The beak was daffodil delight and pumpkin pie.
It was the first time I have ever used the woodland Embossing folder. After I had run the smokey slate card stock through the big shot, I dabbed the card stock directly with the smokey slate ink pad, giving it a rough colour.

I hope this card lets the family know how much was are thinking of them.
