A very difficult card to make

This card looks simple enough, but was so hard to make. A friend requested a sympathy card, but a baby sympathy card.  A friend of hers has given birth to premmie twins, and one has tragically passed away, whilst the other is still fighting for life.  She wanted a card acknowledging the birth, but offering sympathy for the loss of a child.
 This semtiment is from a Hero Arts clear set called "Remember".  The sentiment inside reads "our hearts and thoughts are with you" - the HA stamp reads "My heart and thoughts...", so I had to do some creative stamping, using some letters and words from other stamps in the set.

I'll be submitting this to Lilypad Cards Patterned paper challenge.
