JustRite Friday Challenge #69 Entry #2: Spring Fling

I sadly need a couple of sympathy cards and since this is in memory of a sweet lady who loved flowers, I thought it would be appropriate to use pastel feminine spring colors. To me a spring's butterflies signify hope. Our hope is that the grief felt by her dear daughter will soon be replaced with precious memories of her beloved Mother.
The pastel colors and butterfly fit JustRite's current Spring Fling challenge. I absolutely LOVE the sentiments in JustRite's With Sympathy Clear set and though I didn't use it today, the rose stamp is absolutely stunning! I've used SBs' Romantic Rectangles to die cut my black and pink layers and simply sandwiched a floral rounded corner rectangle between them for contrast. My floral BG paper and hand cut butterfly are from Cosmo Cricket's Evangeline paper pad. A simple row of pearls finishes off the card.

Stamp: JustRite's With Sympathy
Ink: Memento's Tuxedo Black
Paper: Cosmo Cricket's Evangeline 6 x 6 Paper Pad; Black/Pink CS from stash
Embellishments: SB's Romantic Rectangles dies; hand-cut butterfly; pearls from stash
