Good Morning! My Friday Sketchers Challenge....

I have made one of the two Sympathy Cards I have to send shortly.
I have also followed the Sketch from Friday Sketchers on this one!

I am not sure if I like this one - I would like to hear what you have to say about it, please.
You will notice it is a 'busy' card for me. It has a lot of bling on it and I am not sure about this much bling on a 'Sympathy' Card?

Card stock used is SU 'Bermuda Bay', 'Riding Hood Red', and 'Very Vanilla'. The Design Paper is from a book from 'My Minds Eye'. I really like it as it has words printed on it that are very appropriate. I used 'Very Vanilla' ribbon and stamped on it with a long simple flower ( which I learned from my friend, Glenda ) It was stamped with Brown Staz On Ink. My Angel is from Sugar Nellie. I coloured her with Copics and used several colours of Stickles on her. The sentiment on the outside of the card as well as the larger one on the inside of the card came from: Impression Obsession, Inc. - CL114 Sympathy Sentiments. I used Nestibilites Labels 1 for the inside.
Here are some more pictures:



And the inside:



Many thanks for looking at my card. Please don't forget to let me know your thoughts on this one :o)
Have a great day - New Years Eve is just a day away and I am sure most of you have great plans.
Love Candy

Candy, I actually have not made a sympathy card, so not sure what's appropriate. But I think you card turned our beautifully. And the sentiment is very lovely. I'm sure who ever gets the card will appreciate the thoughts that goes behind it.

Hugs.
