Perfect Sentiments: "Sympathy/Thinking of You"

Here is The Perfect Sentiment challenge for this week:
The challenge: create a card with a sentiment of sympathy or thinking of you
Just make sure to remember that your sentiment needs to be on the front of your card.
Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish.  The winner will receive 5 free digis.

Here is the card I made for our challenge.  I hope it provides some inspiration.
My card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used white cardstock for the base and cut some pink and green mats for my card.  The pink mat is 5 3/8"x4 1/8."  The green mat is 5 1/8"x3 7/8." 

I cut some white cardstock at 4 7/8"x3 5/8."  I stamped my sentiment is a pink pearlescent ink in the lower right hand corner.  The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper.  I then embossed the white cardstock with the D'vine Swirls folder.

The flower is from Art Nouveau.  I cut it at 3 1/2."  I then used a Martha Stewart punch to cut some butterflies.  I folded up their wings and adhered them just by their bodies.  It gave the card some nice dimension.

Make sure to check out the rest of the inspiration provided by the design team at The Perfect Sentiment.  Then be sure to link up your own card.  I can't wait to see what you create!

  4. Very pretty with that hanging flower arrangement! Your sympathy card is beautiful! TFS!
