Sympathy Silhouette

Today's Featured Stamper at Splitcoaststampers is Jean (naturecoastcrafter) and I chose a simple silhouette card found HERE to base my sympathy card on.  The wildflowers are from a Taylored Expressions set which I won during the Splitcoaststampers Hope You Can Cling To card drive last year - keep a look out for this years card drive in October! I stamped this silhouette before adding new ink to my Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad - and what a difference that makes. The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Elegant Blessings, which uses a beautiful simple, yet elegant font.  I usually like to keep sympathy cards quite clean and simple so I hope I haven't "overdone" this one by adding too much.  I started with punched flowers, then went for a butterfly and finished with pearls. 
Supplies include:
Taylored Expressions
SU Blushing Bride ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Woodware flower punch
Sewing machine
Twine (The Twinery)
