Simple Sympathy

I sent out a sympathy card and made a note to myself to make another to have on hand. Sadly, before I got that done, I found a need for one.
This is what I came up with: It follows the Stamplorations sketch for October, and the butterfly is a Stamplorations stamp. The butterflies are white-embossed on three different shades of blue from a paint swatch card.
The sentiment is from All Night Media, with a little piercing detail added.

 I'm entering these challenges:

Butterfly Challenge #40 -- embossing
STAMPlorations -- October sketch
Just Us Girls #313-- sympathy
Word Art Wednesday #204 -- anything goes
Crafty Sentiments -- anything goes
Papertake Weekly -- anything goes.


  1. The three tones of blue (paint chips, really?) give a nice effect on the light blue background. A beautiful card-so sorry you found a need for it so quickly.
    Thanks for joining us this week at Just Us Girls!

  2. Sorry to hear that you needed to make another card so soon again. This card is very elegant with the shading in the same colour. I love the embossed butterflies . Thankyou for fluttering by # 40. Hugs Mrs A.
