Butterfly Sympathy

This morning I woke up and I really wanted to work with my True Beauty butterfly stamps. I had a whole different direction for my card in mind...but then I took a quick peek at the Wednesday sketch challenge over on SCS and I knew that would be perfect for this stamp set. This was such a quick card and having a paper pack from The Angel Company's Soar with it Collection and matching cardstock made it super easy to get started. When I saw the purple hues of Angelee I thought "butterflies!"... the image itself was simple because I just needed 4 different Tombow markers and an aquabrush.

Sadly this card is going to a friend of the family. I've known Bob and Betty since I was a kid and they even came to my wedding...Bob passed away last week at 82, without warning. It scares me since my parents are in their late 70's...but really, we have to make the most of each day, what ever our age!

Card Materials:
Stamps: True Beauty
Accessories: Fiskars punch, ribbon, Tombow markers, aquabrush, Angelee Soar with it Collection and cardstock

I might had a little stickles for sparkle to this butterfly yet...still trying to get a better photo. sigh.... Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
