SWALK Sympathy Card

A close friend and fellow crafter has, very sadly, just lost her Dad so I had to make one of those dreaded sympathy cards.  She's a fan of SWALK images so I thought this stamp would fit the bill nicely.
 The image was, of course, coloured with Promarkers, the sentiment was done with a Stampin' Up stamp.  I decided to go for a white on white scheme, adding interest by embossing with a Sheena Douglass folder and adding a punched strip made with my favourite Martha Stewart punch.  Some white ribbon, a bow and some pearls finish it off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
