Sympathy Card

I made this one for someone my husband works with. If I remember right, her dad died. Sympathy cards are always so hard to make. I chose colors in the mauve family for this and used some stitched dazzles for the big butterfly. I then used the "innie" of the dazzle and ut it onto the darker mauve paper and cut it out and layered them together for even more dimmension. I used Martha Stewart punches on both the borders towards the bottom. I LOVE the lace punch and can't stop using it. I was going to add the sentiment on the front, but I opted for more butterflies instead. I even put some of the wonderful paper on the back. I may still add a couple pearls to the butterflies- I'm just never satisfied! :)
