ICSketches #66 and Color Throwdown #92 - With Sympathy

Card,With Sympathy,Butterfly,Cricut Stamping

Yesterday morning, my mother-in-law received the terrible news that her brother passed away in Italy. She was terribly saddened by the news, especially as she was particularly fond of him and held a close bond with him. I never know what to say or do in situations like these so I resorted to making this card.

I used ICSketches #66 for the layout and followed the colour scheme at Color Throwdown. The craft paper is from my new stash by Stampin' Up, which came in my demonstrator package, along with the stamped sentiment. The butterflies are cut twice at 3/4" from the Cricut Stamping cartridge, with the second cut using the blackout feature. I inked the edges with green ink and decided to keep this one simple.
