Sympathy cards

A friend of mine unfortunately needed a couple of sympathy cards.  I had less than an hour to make these cards (which means they were both the same - hehe!)  It seems when I start with a blank slate I envision one thing but end up with something completely different.  Does this happen to anyone else?!  Ok, enough talk, here is the card...

Not sure if you can see in the picture, the card is sitting on the envelope.  I cut out the pattern paper with the Papertrey Ink envelope die.  I think it really makes a homemade card look sophisticated. 

The paper doily is actually something I picked up in the cake decorating aisle at Hobby Lobby.  I saw Dawn McVey use the paper doily and knew I had to get some and try it out.  I love the look.
