Sympathy Card Using CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp & Thin Cuts

Hello Friends!  I hope you are all doing well.  I created this card several months ago and wasn't able to post it at that time.  This is one of my favorite stamp and die sets. I still haven't gotten these posted.  I did this one Monochromatic.  

 A friend of mine lost her daughter, who was killed by her daughter's husband and then he shot himself.  I am grateful that he didn't shoot her as well; but she was in a different part of the house.  Such a sad situation and so difficult for that family.

Not sure if this set is still available. System down right now. 
The stamp is C1844; but it might be retired as well.
