I started with the New Mercies set and the Antique Lost & Found papers I had out from a previous project. I stamped the smaller leaves silhouette in Perfect Plum on designer paper, then highlighted with a Perfect Plum marker and a white gel pen. I added the with heartfelt sympathy sentiment at the top in black and accented with a butterfly die cut. All of the patterned paper pieces are sponged lightly with vintage photo and black soot, and I added a touch of perfect plum to the bigger panels to pull the color throughout the design.
The embossed background is a paisley folder from Anna Griffin, lightly sponged with vintage photo and black soot and I embellished the card with a bit of black lace trim and some black rhinestones for the butterfly body.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous week!
