Butterfly Sympathy

My friend's boss's mother just passed away and she needed a sympathy 
card.  I'm not sure why but I really love butterflies on sympathy cards.

I kept this one pretty simple.  No stamping other than the sentiment. 
I distressed the edges of my borders since they were the same color as 
my paper and I wanted them to pop.

My borders are from EK Success & Martha Stewart.
Butterfly is from a Cuttlebug die.
Flourish is a Sizzix Sizzlet.
Stampin' Up Word Window and so is the punch it's matted on. (can't remember the name)

My friend liked it so much she said "I hope you took a picture for the future
when I ask you to duplicate this."  Silly girl...I ALWAYS take a picture of my cards.
She's not a crafter...she doesn't "know".

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