Heartfelt Sympathy

Happy Thursday everyone! 1 more day and the weekend is here!!
 Now, for today's card- it's a sympathy card. I've been card-making for years and never made a sympathy card, so I hope you enjoy my card as it's out of the norm for me. :o)
I stamped the Lily Image from Inkadinkado onto white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Markers. Stickles in yellow were used for the stamens and I used Glossy accents on the vase.
I then inked around the image with Red Ink from Recollections and used the Spellbinders Circle die cut.
I layered the image onto chevron DP paper from Recollections that was die cut with the Die-namics Blueprints 3 die from My favorite Things and layered this onto red cardstock from American Crafts.  I then pierced 2 of the corners and used White clear pearls from Recollections in the opposite corners. I finished it off with a white ribbon and layered it onto the white card base with pop-dots. The Sentiment was self-generated with Word and die cut with the smaller Spellbinders Circles. I finished it off with red ink to match the image.
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Thank you for stopping by and Happy Stampin'!

I noticed your card at the sentimental sundays challenge. I love how it has colour in it, a warm, comforting colour. It has a positive note to it, like instead of crying along, you offer a hug and a shoulder to cry upon.
