Musical tag with sympathy

One of my husband's friends and band members passed away on Monday after an eight month struggle with lung cancer.  He was a big guy with an even bigger heart.  Luckily I saw a post on facebook to realize that there was the visitation so that I was able to attend.  I had some sympathy cards in my stash; however, I thought they were rather feminine.  It's hard to know since the person who died is a man, but you are giving the card to the wife who is a female.  I decided I wanted to make something with music on it since our husbands spent a lot of time together in the bands and performing musicals.  I found that I had an already made tag in musical paper that was perfect and just stamped the sentiment from a Verve stamp. This is what I came up with.

Patterned Paper:  K & Company
Cardstock:  Recollections
Tag:  Michael's
Stamp:  Verve - Treasured Words
Ink:  Memento - Tuxedo Black
Spellbinder:  Lotus
Flowers:  Prima
Pearls:  Michael's
Ribbon:  Michael's
