Butterfly Sympathy

Good evening all

My card today is an order from a colleague at work.  It is a Sympathy card for her friend who has lost a son. I have gone for clean and simple in blue and white.

I have taken a square piece of white card stock and embossed it using the Die'sire Embossalicious Regency Swirl embossing folder from Crafters Companion.  This has then been mounted onto blue card stock leaving a small border around the edge.

From my computer, I have printed the sentiment "With Sympathy Vicky", onto a panel of white card and again, mounted it onto white card.  Next, I have wrapped a piece of blue satin ribbon around the panel and layered it down the centre of the card.

Using the Memory Box Pippi Butterfly die, I have cut out three from silver mirror card and three from blue card and layered together.  These have been placed down the centre of the white panel.

To finish, I have added a bow made from the same blue satin ribbon and a gemstone button in the centre.
