Sympathy card

We heard tonight of the death of an old friend, so I've made this to send to his wife.
A5 side opening and as he was such a lovely man I've parted with a tassel.

Organza ribbon and tassel from Joanna Sheen. BG paper is from the collection Lemon Grass by Penny Springman from Sweet Shoppe.
Oh, I forgot to say I used two eyelets to thread the ribbon through. I haven't used them for quite some time and forgot how much hammering was needed :-(
Some of the flowers have an extra layer, can you call that decoupage?

Always difficult cards to make - stunning work. Sorry to hear about your friend.

Such difficult cards to make Irene, especially when they are for good friends. This is so lovely absolutely perfect for this sad occasion.

These are never easy cards to make Irene and you have done a sensitive job with this wonderful card

Thank you for the nice comments.
I didn't want it to be too sombre so hope I haven't gone the other way? too much.
