Case This Sketch #99 Sympathy Card

Do you have a hard time creating sympathy cards?  I sure do! They are very important and must be sent.  Yet it's hard to convey the gesture of sympathy in a card.  So I made one today and figured I'd share it here not only to hopefully inspire you but also to inspire myself in case I need a similar card in the future.  I am not very good at keeping things organized on my hard drive!

I sought out the latest Case this Sketch challenge #99.   I love how customizable this sketch is!  I could definitely see me using this again!

Below is my sympathy card.

It uses Stampin' Up's beautiful stamp set called "Just Believe"  and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's "round and round" anniversary set. A few trims, pearls and a bow rose finish up the card.  The bow and rose were actually one colored and I colored the rose brown with Copics to match the rest of the card.  The butterfly is from my 3-D butterflies file.  The butterfly was actually blue cut for another project but not needed.  I simply colored it with Copics too.  These markers were quite an investment in the beginning but I have found soo many money saving uses for them!

If you would like to purchase my file please click here or the preview below.
I will be posting other cards here soon so please stop back.  Oh and I will also be posting some of my favorite homemade cleaning recipes too.   Thanks for visiting!
