Sympathy Card for Color Challenge

After a REALLY stressful day at work, I decided that craft time is a necessity for me today. So, I explain to my DH that I need to go do the SCS challenge. He then mentions that he needs a sympathy card for his boss, whose father-in-law died. So, my crafting is welcome in the house tonight on many levels.

The color challenge for today was to use Basic Black, Basic Gray, and Purely Pomegranate in the card. I was excited that my recent order from Oriental Trading just came. I ordered some of their velvet ribbon, and their Fun Expressions! Fall Velvet ribbon had a Purely Pomegranate feel to it. I love how it looks on this card. I also got to use my new Out on a Limb set from Papertrey Ink. Love it. Wish the card was a happier one.

Size: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches
Paper: White (Papertrey), SU! Purely Pomegranate (embossed with Fiskars Leaves texture plate), Basic Gray, and Basic Black
Inks: SU! Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip, and Basic Black
Stamps: Papertrey Out on a Limb and Everyday Blessings
Ribbon: Fun Expression Fall Velvet Ribbon (Oriental Trading)

It looks awesome. Can you please provide more details about the raw material you used and where you got it from. It would be of great help. Thanks JoLynn.
