Bereavement card

I have made this card for a friend who lost her Mother last Tuesday. She is Dutch and I thought this Magnolia stamp of two flowers was so right. I wanted to make the card very simple.
I have coloured it with distress inks. Dusty concord for the flowers and Bundled sage for the leaves. I used Pumice stone to put shading around it. I used Spellbinders oval frames and a scalloped frame. I also used a spellbinders tag for the sentiment. The two side panels are from an embossing folder. Sorry I can't remember the name of it.
The Magnolia Stamp is called Two Tulips and it's from the Hoppy Easter collection. You can get it here
