Sympathy Card

I created this sympathy card for a friend from work lost her grandfather unexpectedly. I used today's sketch #213 from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

My card base is white with a layer of unknown green CS from my stash. The Bashful Blue layer was embossed with a SU folder after stamping the sentiment in Memento Black ink. The butterfly was stamped in Memento Black on white CS, colored with Copics, die cut and sponged with Barely Banana while still in the die. I stamped the butterfly a second time, colored it, fussy cut it and attached it just on the edge so it looks like the butterfly moving. The So Saffron square was die cut with nesties. The banners were also die cut. The tiny butterflies were punched, glued on and some tiny pearls were added to their bodies.  I hope it brings some comfort to my friend.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time,
