With Heartfelt Sympathy...

I had a spare 30 minutes last night, while waiting for hubby to come home 
We were going out to dinner for a DATE NIGHT 
and I needed to keep myself busy while I waited
 So what to do?  Why make a card of course!
So, I made a quick card for the i {heart} sketch, sketch #147 (see below)
The TWIST this week, Lots of Patterned Paper
I used the new Stamp of the Month set for April at From the Heart Stamps
The set is Time to Bloom
You can get the set FREE and join in the monthly progressive challenge HERE
I made a sympathy card, but thankfully, I do not have a need to use the card at this time
My card is a standard A2 white card base, layered with 3 patterned papers from a 6" x 6" pad from Memory Box - Viola, following the sketch pattern.  I really love Purple, Lavender and Green together, very calming color combo
The butterfly image was colored using my Copic markers:  BV00, BV02, BV04, C-1, YG03, YG09
I then cut out the butterfly and mounted on to the card.  I added one of the sentiments from the set and finished the card with a lavender ribbon/bow and some mixed shades of purple sequins
Thanks for stopping by tonight and let me know what you think of my card.  I love to hear from you.  Have a great weekend.
