Sympathy card with a lacy heart

I prefer to make sympathy cards before I need them so I decided to add a couple to my stash.  You can check out the other one I made here.  I started with the lacy die cut heart which arrived in one of my exchange cards this year!!  I found this handmade watercolour background which coordinated very nicely so I cut it to size and chose a light green cardstock to go with these two elements.  I attached my die cut to the background paper using two white brads in the center of the large flowers on the die cut.  I added a slim ribbon adhering the ends to the back of it using double sided tape.  I adhered this large element to the front of my green card.  I thought that the die cut still needed a bit of something so I added green rhinestones to the small flowers and that helped.  I added some hand embossed lines to the large flowers and that was better.  I tied a short length of ribbon to the one on the front to simulate a bow and added my layered greeting (SU) over it near the bottom.
Very happy with my card!!
