With Sympathy . . .Faux Stitching Technique

I made this card on the weekend.  I noticed my sympathy cards supply were lacking, and I always want to have my sympathy cards ready to go...I never like to make a sympathy card when I am sad and upset. 

Now I hope I never have to use these cards, but reality is reality, you have to have them on hand.  

I normally try to use neutral tones when making sympathy cards, but I changed this one up a bit....I chose Old Olive and Whisper White for my color scheme.  

The card base is a standard 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
The white art piece is cut with the largest framelit from the Banner Framelits

Then I grabbed my Project Life Journalling Pen and created a faux stitched border around the banner.  

Next I stamped the leaf image from the Crazy About You stamp set using Old Olive Ink.  

I grabbed my Project Life Journalling Pen again and added a bit of detail to the leaves. 

A quick greeting stamped with Memento Black ink and a few green toned sequins completes this card.  

What do you think....ok with Old Olive or should I have stuck with neutral tones?
