Sadly, I had to make a sympathy card today for a friend whose close Aunt passed away last week from cancer. I was reading the challenges and saw that No Time to Stamp had one for sympathy cards (which are always difficult to create). I like using this memories verse from Cloud 9 Stamps on my sympathy cards as I feel it really expresses how you might remember someone's life.
The "scallop oval edging and flowers" is an unmounted stamp from Pez-a-Doodle Stamps that I embossed with gold EP on K&Co paper. Here's the link: http://www.pezadoodle.com/buscfr.html
I used a Spellbinders Oval Nestie to cut out the center to make a window card. The edge of the oval is embossed, but hard to see in the pic. The butterfly is cut with a Spellbinders die from embossed vellum. Sheer ribbon, primas, and pearls for dimension. I also embossed a smaller butterfly and group of flowers on the inside of card.
