in the garden sympathy

My good friend Josephines' mother in law passed away. I wanted to make a simple card for her to show my support and let her know that I am thinking about her and her family.
I have always loved purple (vintage violet) and yellow (summer sun) together. I struggled with what image to use and then decided on SU's From the Garden large flower stamp. It is huge. I had to cut off some of the image to fit onto the 5 1/4 " square card. I colored with copics, added some stickles to the center of the flower, and added a ribbon. I stamped With Sympathy from Warmest Regards in Vintage Violet. It's very simple, but I think graceful and peaceful.
Thanks for looking!
