Pale Pastels Sympathy Card

Good evening!
This is my second post today! I got 2 cards finished in less than 24 hours!
I had already embossed the background paper and made the 2 flowers (a couple weeks ago before leaving on our trip)...all out of the lovely sparkley Cryogen pale ivory cardstock. The leaves that have inked edges are also Cryogen, but the other leaves and the base diecuts are a pale mint green paper from my scrap box.

The Bible verse on the front of the card is the FREE one this week at Word Art Wednesday. Very appropriate for a sympathy card for a Christian lady, a precious grandma, who went home to be with her Lord last Friday. 
Not sure if I like the "With Sympathy" on the inside, but I didn't want it on the front this time. 
What do you think?

For this card I used a Sizzix embossing folder called "Flourish, Dots" and four sizes of the Spellbinders Labels 4 dies. I also used the Sizzix/Tim Holtz "Tattered Flower Garland" dies to make the layered flowers. The leaves are all cut from the "Foliage" Spellbinders die set. The green ink edging is Stampabilities, lime green; the lavender is Studio G ink. 
And that's about it!
So I will be entering this in: - Challenge #71 "Anything Goes"
Thank you, WAW, for the lovely digital scripture!
I am also entering this in a new challenge I found recently...lots of really creative stuff there!
and the challenge this week (#32) is "Flowers".

Sandie: I hadn't even thought of using this scripture for a sympathy card, but really...that's quite perfect. What a beautiful reassurance and comfort knowing that God has prepared a place SO wonderful for us. I don't fear death, because of what I know He has created for us, and what awaits. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous creation using our word art for this week.
