With Sympathy

Last week, I was shocked to learn that a club "sister" passed away.  We were in the same club for many years.  It brought back cherished memories of all the service projects, activities, fairs, and other events we participated in.  Though I left the club a few years ago, I still think of all the members as "sisters" and it was really nice to see and chat with them as we all helped at her funeral.  I know that our "sister" is resting peacefully and believe she has wings of an angel in heaven.

Here's the card I made.  Kept it simple with a little bit of elegance....

....and sparkle from the glittered paper I used for the butterfly and flowers.  Thought I'd add a touch of color by adding lavender flat-back pearls.

Other Supplies:
Embossing folder by Cuttlebug
Fanciful Flourish by Cheery Lynn
Delaney Butterfly by Poppy Stamps
Small flowers from Baby's Breath Flower Kit by Cheery Lynn
Sentiment - Laser cut by and from Island Scrapbooking

Thank you for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY and a fabulous weekend.
