Deepest Sympathy Flower

Hello, everyone.  Welcome to my newest followers - so nice to have you with me!  Today I have made another sympathy card.  You may remember my parents requested some of these for their stash.  Here I have used a floral image from Crafty Secrets, from their Flower Garden set; the sympathy sentiment is a clear stamp from Hero Arts from their Everyday Sayings set.

I coloured the flower lightly with my Prismacolor pencils.  I stamped the sentiment on a white panel and then embossed it with Cuttlebug Victoria.  The flower is die-cut with my Nellie's Multiframe Ovals and mounted on Spellbinders Labels Eighteen in sage green embossed cardstock (sorry I don't have the source - it was an offcut in my stash).  I added some white Offray ribbon, a simple bow, and four green gems.  Here are the stamps used (links to purchase are above):  

I would like to enter the following challenges:
