sympathy butterfly

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope you have a fantastic day all planned out for yourself! I'm looking forward to the National Day of Prayer gathering in our downtown. I hurt one of my thigh muscles when exercising on Wednesday so I have to give it a little break today, too.

So do yo think you can stand another sympathy card? I know I'm having a hard time making them. This is just a real simple card (that honestly I'm not sure if I like or not) that I used PTI's Background Basics Spots and Dots and Everyday Classics as well as the SU!'s Bigz Beautiful Butterflies Die on. I then made the antenna with some real thin wire and added a little body to it with pearls. The colors are PTI chocolate brown , spring moss, and then Palette Fresh Snow Ink. And the original idea for the layout came from a card that Nicki Estes made.

This is going to be short as I need to get moving with my day but I hope that your Thursday is wonderful!
