Sympathy - Green and Cream

This card is somewhat of a departure from my usual style.  The challenge is for cream and green, using a stamped image and sentiment - so far, not a problem.  However, four layers - I was not sure if a sentiment on another layer would be too many, so I added the sentiment to the image layer.  No mention of ribbon, pearls, etc, so they are also missing.  This is a tailored look I think works well for a sympathy card.  Thanks, Selma, for another lovely inspiration.
The image is SU Ageless Adornment and the sentiment is Paper Inspirations.  CB embossing folder is Victoria.  The mats are a dark green. 
Another departure - we are spending the summer in our RV.  I tried to estimate how many supplies I would use - this is my last ivory CS and I mismeasured the base, so it is 4.25x5.25.  Actually, the result seems more in proportion than I thought it would.
