Sympathy card, IC sketch and color challenge

The wife of a coworker of mine lost her grandmother, so I made them a sympathy card. I use Inspired Crafter's Sketch #7 and the color combo by cupojafa. Oops, I just realized I was supposed to make a Christmas card for this challenge. I've never tried the cream and white color combo before--very pretty. I just hope this card is not too wedding-y. It's hard to tell, but I embossed the sent with Hologram Highlights mixed with white EP. The little doily is Martha Stewart (I found out about them from Vickie Y over on SCS), butterflies are SU/Sizzix Embosslits, BG is Cuttlebug, sentiment and border punch are SU, and CS and ribbon are PTI. This card was totally inspired by THIS one and THIS one. Thanks for stopping by!

WOW Amy. Very nice card. I do not think it looks very weddingish. Infact it is quite muted for a sympathy card.

I loved how you have used the doily.
