Bittersweet Days

Howdy!  Adrienne here from Eagle Canyon Arts.  Thanks to Sheila for inviting me to be a guest designer this month and Happy New Year!

Sometimes in the midst of celebrating the joy of holidays, we also experience the bittersweet occasion of mourning the passing of a friend or family member.  Such was the case for us last month.  Here is the card I sent to the family. 

Supplies needed:
Twilight Ink (retired) 
Avonlea Papers (retired) 
"Be Still" Stamp (A1141) 
"Words of Comfort" Stamps (retired, suggest "Look to the Light" B1428) 
Just Blooms Butterflies (retired)
I sanded the edges of the papers to give them a worn look.  The butterflies were daubed with a couple different colors of ink to match the paper color.  Inside, the card has a fitting expression with a small grouping of flowers. Thanks for looking at this project.  Best wishes for the New Year!

This is a beautiful card. I love it. I have this stamp and have always used in in the inside. I really like it on the front of the card. Thanks for sharing today.

Lovely card, and that's what I have to make today because of a loss our family has suffered while we were away. TFS.
