May You Be Comforted

Unfortunately, in the past week I have had to design two sympathy cards.  Since I only have one stamp collection with sympathetic sentiments, I had to use design paper to enhance each design.  I rarely repeat cards.  The first card was designed for a co-worker who lost his mother-in-law.
Because this card was designed for a male, I tried to use a masculine dp and a simple sentiment.

This card was designed for my daughter to give to her manager.  Because this card is being addressed to both the manager and his wife, and also because of their relative positions in the company, (He is the company President, my daughter is the Corporate Controller and VP of Finance and Accounting) I wanted a card that would be elegant and yet maintain the appropriate professional distance.
