Sympathy Card in Black, White and Brown

It is not often that someone I know personally passes on,
but a friend lost her beloved father-in-law recently.
This CAS card was made for her and her family in mind
for she is not alone in mourning.
Leena, this is for you.

The birds are cut using Spellbinders Bird Sanctuary,
black bird on stamped black branch,
and 3 brown birds walking in sync to show support.
In Sympathy sentiment is Kaiser Rub On.
This card is submitted for:-
My Time To Craft Challenge #187 ~ Black, White and One Other Color

I am aware that the challenge by Clear It Out called for dark papers, but I chose to use white because in the East, white is the color for purity and used in memorials, burials and funerals, as with the West, I believe.
