So Sorry Butterflies

Unfortunately I need a sympathy card so I came up with this one using the Stampin' Royalty Challenge #186 and the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #51.  Thankfully I haven't needed one in quite a while.

The card base is Crumb Cake card stock.  I took a piece of Natural Composition designer paper and sponged it with Pear Pizzazz ink.  Since it is an embossed paper, I wiped it off with a tissue and the embossed area shows up.  I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink and matted it 
with Crumb Cake card stock that was also sponged.  I added a piece of Victoria Crochet Trim near the bottom.  The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was stamped in the corner with Crumb Cake ink and the layer added to the card.  I stamped two of the butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri stamp 
set on Very Vanilla card stock with Bermuda Bay ink on Very Vanilla card stock with Bermuda Bay ink and punched them out with the Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches.  The other butterflies were cut out of Bermuda Bay card stock using the Big Shot and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  A couple were layered using Glue Dots and all were added to the card with Glue Dots and DimensionalsPearls were added for a little extra dimension.  That's it for today.  Stop by again.
