Another Sympathy Card

This is a sympathy card I've been needing to make for weeks for a friend in our Sunday School class whose father passed away a month or so ago.

The size of the card is 3 7/8" x 8 1/2".  I bought some #10 envelopes a few weeks ago and have been wanting to make a card this size.  I decided to try the Tuesday Trigger winter white challenge that you can find here at Moxie Fab World. 

Here is how I made the card:

Embossing:  Cuttlebug (I put one end of my paper into the folder and embossed it, and then turned it around and embossed the other end.  The seam is covered by the cross, sentiment and ribbon.)
Ribbon:  Unknown
Cross:  Paper Studio punch - added a Dress It Up glitter dot in the center
Oval and label behind cross:  Punches
Sentiment:  Computer generated and then used a McGill punch set to punch it out.
Border punch:  EKSuccess

Thanks for looking!

Here was my inspiration:





And here is my card, which doesn't look much like winter white in this photo:
