2 Sketches 4 You

Hello again.  Unfortunately I had to make a Sympathy card for my mom last night.  My Aunt...her sister passed away on Valentine's Day.  I knew I wanted it to be soft and I think the butterflies were fitting for this type of card. 
My Aunt Rosie was a crafty gal herself.  She liked to crochet and bead as well as a few others.  Life is too short!  Remember to take that extra minute or two each day to tell your family and loved ones how much they mean to you.  You just never know when the last time will be. 

I thought the colors at Curtain Call were just ther right ones.  Are they beautiful or what?
Cardstock: PTI/ Vintage Cream & mustard color is unknown
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Felt: local craft store
Die: Spellbinders( felt flower)
Butterfly: Cricut / Indie Art (big) and MS punch (small)
Stamp: PTI/ Bloooming Button Bits
Button: Basic Grey
Floss: DMC

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment.  I appreciate all the kind words you leave me.
