Sympathy Card for Phindy's Challenge

The challenge at Phindy's Place Challenge this week is to use ribbon.  I selected this beautiful image from Phindy thinking it would be perfect for a sympathy card so all I had to figure out was how to use the ribbon tastefully.  By its nature I don't think a sympathy card should be overly embellished so I hope I have accomplished that with this one.  I have put the following verse inside:

Within our hearts
and in our memories
those we love
remain with us

Thinking of you
at this difficult time.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Phindy's Place - Ribbon
A Spoon Full of Sugar - 3D something
Stamping Royalty  - Punches
Little Red Wagon  - Sympathy

 The image from Phindy's Place is called Quiet Afternoon and has been coloured with a combination of Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons and Mungyo chalk.  The paper is from a Provo Craft Scrap Pack and the card stock is Recollections (Michaels).  The sentiment is computer generated.  Other supplies used:  Ribbon (Fabricland), Skeleton Leaf (Graphic Products), Border Punch (Martha Stewart) and Nestabilities (Spellbinder).

  6. Hey, I think ribbon goes with any card, well except manly ones. They put ribbon on flower arrangements for a funeral...don't they!!!!
    Your card is perfect with the ribbon, but I am a 'ribbony' girl. Your coloring of the image is impeccable.
