Heartfelt Sympathy

Hi everyone and thanks for joining me from the Card A Day Blog.  I'm the designer of the day and I'm finishing off the week with out theme of Sympathy Cards. I pulled the pink paper from my March Counterfeit Kit after making my Lovely Day layout as part of the blog hop

I started by embossing the white cardstock with the framed tulip folder.  I then trimmed off just a bit to make it fit onto the card and inked the edges a little bit of the embossing to make it stand out.

I then stamped the center image onto white cardstock and stamped the butterfly and cut it out and layered everything together.

For the inside I kept everything pretty simple and stamped the sentiment with dove gray ink, leaving plenty of room for my message. By the time this posts I will have already mailed it out.

Thanks for stopping.
