I have been trying to increase my all occasion card stash before I drag out all the Christmas paper and stamps. I love the water color DP from SU. I had a small piece of it left and thought it would work well for a sympathy card. And I love butterflies on sympathy cards. They seem so peaceful.
The large butterfly is SU Butterfly Prints and punch. Scrapper's Floss make the antennae. There are 2 aqua gemstones in the center. And here I go again--I had to fill up all that white space so I punched out smaller butterlies with punches from Martha Stewart and Stampin' Up. Sponging them with Tempting Turquoise gave them a little more definition. The sentiment is also SU and I used Basic Gray instead of black for a softer look, not as much contrast as black..
I used this sketch from Case This Sketch


  1. So pretty! Great take on the sketch!

  2. Well done!! I love butterflies too - to me they represent hope!! Perfect for a sympathy card!! This is really lovely!!
