White on White Sympathy Butterfly


I made this card anticipating entering a few challenges and unfortunately had to stamp a sympathy sentiment inside of it.  My mother lost her best friend on Wednesday.  There is something a little eerie about this card.  I made this on Wednesday after I found out.  On Sunday morning my mom called me with the arrangements and was telling me about the flowers she ordered.  She had two RED BUTTERFLIES put in with the flowers to represent the two of them. 

I printed the Butterfly from Sugar Creek Hollow twice so that the wings sould be more 3-dimensional.  Looking at it now I wish I had colored the butterfly underneath as well but my time was limited.  I had 2 other cards that needed to be made that same night.  (they're very similar and I'll post those later this week.


I've entered my card in the following challenges...


Card makings:
Image: Sugar Creek Hollow
3 Cuttlebug embossing folders
Spellbinders: Eyelet & Lacy square
crocheted lace
Copic markers
Sizzix embossing corner die
red pearls
