Sympathy Card

Hello friends!  I am here to share a sympathy card I made for a friend.  These aren't the ones I like to make but it is a necessary evil so to speak.  This card could easily be changed up for a different occasion by changing the sentiment.  I used the Birds & Blooms set from Papertrey Ink.  I have to say it was a little intimidating lining up all of the parts, I am still not sure I did it right!  Anyway, I hope you like it.
 I stamped a little bit on the envelope to coordinate.


A close up of the butterfly.  I die cut the butterfly out of Sweet Blush polka dot pattern paper and then again with vellum.  I adhered the vellum butterfly to the Sweet Blush with a touch of Glossy Accents.  I also adhered a couple of pink sequins to the one side of the butterfly for a little dimension.


  I also stamped a little on the flap of the envelope to add a little extra touch.

Thank you for stopping by!
