Gingham Sympathy

Here's a Sympathy Card using the a│s stamp set, Friend to Friend. I love how the onyx gingham looks on the grapefruit. The flower is inked in grapefruit as well. I think this sympathy card would be comforting for someone struggling with a loss because it's simple and classic and places focus on the message.
The vintage labels 2 stamp set and die were the basis for the focal point. I stamped the label on sugar, cut it out just around the edge of the stamped image and then layered it on the middle vintage labels die cut.
I carried the simple classic look inside with the same flower and with the sympathy sentiment from essential sentiments. It's a true CAS look. What do you think?
