Simple sympathy

I like to keep a few sympathy cards on hand - for my own use and also for friends who seem to rely on my stash!  I used this Darice embossing folder - I think you can see I selected lilac cs with a white back, so there is a subtle white shading on the embossing.  I added a Cheery Lynn butterfly, which I cut twice - purple and shimmery champagne (that is also the card base).   Not much of the purple is visible, but it adds dimension.
