Wings

This is my 2nd card for today, and I'm entering it into the Addicted to CAS challenge #18.

I always have a need for sympathy cards, as they're requested more than any other, so I die cut the MB Vivienne and Darla butterflies, glued them together and then added different colors of stickles for some color and sparkle. The teardrop and round pearls are from Pizzazz Aplenty, while the sentiment and ef are from SU!. I stamped the sentiment with some grey wool ink for a softer look.

That's all I have for today, but again - thanks so much for checking in :) Have yourself a wonderful day!

This card is phenomenal. The colored Stickles are just the perfect shades for a sympathy. Soft, tender and caring colors. The embossed tulips are lovely for this card. This will certainly add a little happiness to a sad time in someone's life.
