My first Sympathy card

A friend's Mom passed away this weekend. It is a big loss to everyone who knew her. So I toned myself down a bit and made a card to send. I haven't written inside as yet and used the only stamp that I own that seemed appropriate. I know I have some I could have "put together" to make them say the right thing, but I kind of liked this better. I used Tim Holtz's distress inks for my backgrounds. I also used an embossing folder to get the music notes. There is glitter on Tilda's wings, lace, dress edge and shoes. I used purple gems in the corners and a green one on the bow. I used a metallic pen around my hand cut oval! Got to spend some time on one of those machines! I hope my friend enjoys the card which I can't mail until tomorrow!
Copics I used are:
YG 63, 67, BG 01, 05, BV00, 02, 04, R20, Y21, 28, YR23, E00, 11, 31, 37, C1, C3
 Thanks for looking! Hugs, to you all!

Barb, I think this card is so perfect and sweet... very nice for a sympathy... most cards are so dull and boring, but no reason they cannot have color and sweetness. I believe the recipient of this card will appreciate it very much...
Hugs, Jean
