Black and white sympathy

What did I do before embossing folders?  I used 3 here - With Sympathy - Darice; one by LifeStyle that reminds me of mountains; CB Victoria.  To add the bow - I cut tiny notches in the edge of the image.  I have been wanting to use this new image (part of a prize - thank you!) by Our Daily Bread (Mountain range).  I did not think I could make it work with the sketch, but thanks to lovely inspiration cards, especially one by Chris Olson, I realized I could turn the sketch.  Still had to adjust it a bit...
When I selected this stamp, I had  not thought of using it for a sympathy card.  What do you think?

WOW! If ever there was a Master Embossing Folder-User award, it would go to you for sure! Not only did you nail it with one embossing folder, but I love how you used three of them to create all sorts of great depth and dimension. I have to admit to failing to embrace embossing folders, but your card made me want to reach for them! I love how you achieved such energy and beauty with such a simple and classic color combo. Thanks for inspiring me and for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
