Feminine Sympathy Card

This Feminine Sympathy Card is being sent to my grandmother. I wanted something that included a butterfly and was simple. The patterned paper from The Paper Studio was selected first and it set the feminine style of the card. Pulling colors from the paper, I used Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla cardstock by Stampin' Up!. A little white lace was added before the paper was adhered to the cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped using Soft Suede ink and then the layered butterfly by Hero Arts was stamped using Blushing Bride ink along with Soft Suede. Then the focal oval was layered onto a scalloped oval die cut using a Spellbinders die and adhered to the card with dimensionals. That's it!

I would like to enter this Feminine Sympathy Card into the following challenges:
