Soft Sympathy

Here is another Sympathy card that I sent recently to a fellow church member who just lost her brother. I started with a base of Perfect Plum layered with Pale Plum.  I added a layer of Pink Pirouette (it's such a soft dainty pink) that I ran through my Cuttlebug using the Textile Embossing Folder.  I added strips of Perfect Plum and Shimmery White that I used my new SU Scallop punch on and 3 Pretty in Pink brads. 
For the focal image I used (Live Your Dream) and colored directly on the stamp with markers, (Pale Plum, Mellow Moss, and rocked it onto my Perfect Plum pad for some highlights.  I misted the stamp before stamping it onto the Shimmery White card stock.  The butterflies were stamped with Pink Pirouette ink.  This was mounted on a Scalloped Rectangle of Perfect Plum that I cut using Nestabilities Dies.  The main image was mounted with foam mounting tape.  I computer genrated the sentiment.
