Sorry Fur Your Loss

One of my old co-workers has to put her dog down next week, this card was made for her.  I'm not 100% in love with it, mostly because of the colors.  I like red and black, but I'm not sure if this is fitting for a sympathy card or not...  Opinions?  Maybe if I go with more of a pastel instead of red?

Pretty much this entire card was made using dies and/or punches.  The fold was cut using a die, the circles were cut using dies, the dog is a die, the paw print edge is a punch.  I also used a paw print embossing folder.  The only accessory added was the bow on the dogs neck and the bow on the card itself.  I drew the stitching around the two circles using a black gel pen.

Thanks for looking!
