I found out today that a very dear friend lost his brother last week so I made a card for him this evening.

I used the From the Heart stamp set called Time to Bloom colored with Copics and die cut with MFT Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Square Stax. I printed and cut out some of the flowers. Soe are popped up and others are flat. I die cut some Spellbinder Foliage leaves and used Mowed Lawn distress ink to give them some contrast. The background is embossed with the Leafy Branch embossing folder. I embellished with 2 thin stirps die cut with the MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags. The butterfly (also colored with Copics) and the sentiment is from the Time to Bloom stamp set. I used the I {heart} sketches with a Twist.
The twist this week is show off your coloring skills. My skills aren't great but I thought it turned out fairly nice.
I am entering these challenges:
Hope your week is off to a great start. Thanks for stopping by. I have a bunch to do this week as I have to give training this weekend for our Girl Scout Day Camp. I was up this morning at 4:15am because I thought of a new craft and had to make it. Man, I hope that doesn't happen every night this week or I will definitely be sleep deprived by the end of the week. LOL! Have a super tomorrow.

I like how you've used the sketch to bring the butterfly towards the flowers. I'm sure that your friend will love this thoughtful card.
Thank you for joining in with us at From The Heart Stamps.

Sympathy cards are always tough to make I think. Yours is very nice Donna and I love the subtle embossing.
