With Heartfelt Sympathy

Hi there , hope that your weekend is pleasant. 

One thing that I have just noticed , as I uploaded this card,  is that it is neater to scan the cards as you don't have to worry about the surroundings .
Never mind,  I will be more careful next time . If I get the chance I will edit the photo later.

I have to create a few more Sympathy cards as my supply  has been depleted , sad to say.
This one  has  very simple , clean lines and has only two colours .
I started with Whisper White, SU,  for card base.
Using Bashful Blue , SU, card stock  I made a mat   just  a little smaller than card front .
I then I used my Big Shot to emboss some more Whisper White card . Now because the embossed piece was a bit too short , I cut it about 3cm's from the bottom and after trimming sides , I layered it onto  Bashful Blue piece leaving a small border and a gap between the two white embossed pieces. Next I placed a ribbon, SU, around  and over the gap, securing at the back. I made a separate bow and used Mini dots , SU, to secure it . The sentiment,  in Baja Breeze ink, SU, is from SU set,  Close As A Memory.

What do you think , is it suitably sombre for a sympathy card?
PS...just edited photo .
PS.. again . Entering this in a ' One Colour ' challenge on
