Heartfelt Sympathy Card

Making a sympathy card can be a challenge. I struggle deciding what colors to use. This Heartfelt Sympathy Card was made for one of my former roommates from college who recently lost her sister. Since the recipient is a woman I wanted the colors to be feminine but not bright. I choose Pear Pizzazz, Primrose Petals, Baked Brown Sugar and Whisper White card stock and stamped the butterflies with Marina Mist as an accent color. I loosely based the design off this weeks sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and layered it up for the Charisma Cardz challenge. Most of my sympathy cards include a bird, flowers or butterflies in the design.  The flower and sentiment on this card is from the Simply Sketched hostess stamp set by Stampin' Up!. I stamped the image with StazOn black ink and used a blender pen to color the details.  The final touch was the addition of the pearls on the butterflies. Thanks for stopping by!
