With Sympathy

 I made this Sympathy card for my sister last night because her best friend passed away yesterday.  I saw a very elegant card demonstrated by Susan Campfield and cased it because it is not only elegant but also quick and easy.  I added an extra layer and some gemstones and, since  I still have SU Blendabilities I used the light, medium, and dark cherry cobbler Blendabilities as my accent color.

Swirling Butterflies

I am finally getting a chance to post a card I made the other day for the SUO154 - Delightful Dies challenge.  

Dies:  Rose Garden Thinlits Die; Florish Thinlits Dies
Punches:  Bitty Butterfly; Elegant Butterfly
Paper:  Very Vanilla; Basic Black; Basic Gray; Flirty Flamingo; Timeless Elegance DSP

My card base is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored in half at 4 1/4".  I cut 2 1/8" from the right side of the front of the card.  I watched France Martin's YouTube Video for instructions on the Fun Frame that I attached to the half-front (easier to see the half-front panel in the second and third blog photos).

I used the Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Write marker to color the flowers on the Timeless Elegance DSP.
