Sweet Pea sympathy

I have such a difficult time with sympathy cards. I made this one for a friend who recently lost a wonderful family member. I mailed it already; I hope she gets it before she sees this blog post. Unfortunately, I didn't want to wait any longer to post the card, since the challenge at In a Sweet Pea Dream closes soon. Well, I guess if she sees it, then she'll get to look upon it twice. That sounds like a good rationalization, right?
Image is colored with copics and blinged up with stardust pens in various colors. The large green rose is prima; all other flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. I don't know if this image is right for a sympathy card. I just know that my friend loves Ching-Chou Kiuk's stamps (as I do) and that the image looks somehow intense and so serious. The challenge this time around at In a Sweet Pea Dream is "warmer weather." Well, I figure her bare shoulders don't bode well for cold. Take the bare shoulders, flowers, and butterflies into account, and she's definitely a warmer weather lady!
