Butterflies sympathy card

I made another sympathy card, for the same bereaved friends (Nanny's family) I mentioned the other day:
I used:

- A6 white card blank

- pink and grey papers from the 'Sweet Afternoon' paper pad by Teresa Collins

- the butterflies were punched using using butterfly dies by Memory Box, the solid one is 'Isabella' and the matching 'lacy' one is 'Pippi'

- little white pearls down the butterfly bodies

- sentiment was stamped in VersaMagic 'Pink Petunia' using a stamp from SU's 'Four Frames' set and punched using SU's 'Decorative Label' punch - then I added the Elzybells sentiment

  5. Sympathy cards are one of the hardest for me to make... I don't want them to mornful, or to smiley, they have to be just right..
    and your card hits that mark. Love the simple lines and soft colors you picked.
