Sympathy tree

Here is a card I made for a very good friend of mine who sadly lost her father this week.

This is the first sympathy card I have made and knew I wanted to keep it simple with very little embellishments. So I went in search of a suitable image.
I came across this tree vector image here and knew it was just perfect. 

I added a beautiful sentiment from Clear dollar stamps and added a button twine bow. The dark brown matt is pearlescent and adds just a hint of glimmer.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Color throwdown - Beautiful colour palette
My craft spot challenges - Hope is rising (sympathy & encouragement) 
Clearly inspired challenge sponsored by Clear dollar stamps - Leaves
Papertake weekly challenge - Anything goes + non square card base

Thanks for visiting me today x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo

I'm sure your friend will appreciate your lovely card. I think sympathy cards are the most difficult to make, and you have done a wonderful job.
