Sympathy cards

I am always in need of sympathy cards.  My  brother-in-law was visiting last week.  He lives in a very small town, and cards are not readily available there.  He took all of my stash - then told me he would probably re-sell them to friends as needed!  So I must replenish my supply.
This is for the sketch here:
This requires one image, two papers and 3 embellishments:
I used one Lovely as a Tree (SU) image, cut in 3 pieces.  I have cream and green cs.  With a sympathy card I had a bit more trouble with embellishments.  I used tiny ivory half pearls (Pizzazz Aplenty), a tiny fancy circle punch, and two pieces of a Shapeabilities Doodle die.. The sentiment is from Paper Inspirations.

The sketch for this card is:
The image is ODB.  I used a piece of Basic Grey lacy doily in the corner.  The bg is Swiss Dots (Cuttlebug), and clear rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.

This fits several shallenges:
The sketch:

I used various shades of grey for the color.  The bg is embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.  Additional texture is that lovely  Lavalier Circle die cut by Memory Box.
The image is SU Ageless Adornment.
