Sympathy cards for a Shipmate

Hello. Unfortunately,
 a shipmate of my husband's passed away in a motorcycle wreck. I made 2 cards tonight for him to take to work tomorrow. Sorry for the horrible pictures, I usually take my pictures in daylight. Anyhoo, I used the My Little Firecracker set from MyCreativeTime to make the background on this card. I stamped it with navy Hero Arts Shadow Ink. 
I white heat embossed the greeting from the Everyday Sayings from Hero Arts. Finished it off with a punched Martha Stewart anchor. And here's the other card I made...a little more elaborate.  Again, sorry the pictures are horrible...
The colors on this card are white, navy, and aqua...totally awful pictures!
I cut a circle out for my window and embossed the panel with the Stars Cuttlebug folder. I stamped the waves and anchor inside from a Market Street Stamps set that is no longer available, sorry. I filled the window with sequins from Neat And Tangled. 
The greeting is from the Happy Homecoming set by MyCreativeTime. By the way, "fair winds and following seas" is a Navy term and is suitable for a sympathy card...in case you were wondering. 

Remember to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you. Life really is short.
