Sympathy - in neutrals

Thanks to Inkspirational Challenge for an idea to use this
sentiment.  The bg cs has a bit of texture and  very subtle design - I did use the Victoria embossing folder to add more dimension - all that does not show too well on the screen.  I used the same cs for the butterfly, and lightly sponged the edges with chocolate chalk.  The image is sponged with a mixture of colors (chalk) to match the bg.  I added ribbon and Zingz tear drops from Fiskars.  The mat is a blue grey cs.  This is a color combination I will use again.  The Word Art challenge is for any inspirational verse, with a suggestion of a theme of joy - though this is a sympathy card, we are reminded of the joy of eternal life we anticipate.

gorgeous sentiment and really lovely how you have used this as a sympathy card. I like the butterfly made of same sentiment but edged with brown to define it. Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational.
