With Symathy Card

Now that I have loads of white linen card, I have sat and made 2 very quick cards tonight. I saw a similar style card on a blog last year and I loved the simpicity of the card, and thought that it would make a fabulous layout for any style of card, so I have done my take on the one I saw and come up with this Sympathy Card:

I love butterflies, and think it makes this card looks elegant and peaceful. The butterfly is cut on the craft robo, in white linen card, as is the 2 'nestie' shapes in the centre. One of which I have embossed with the daisy folder on the cuttlebug. A few pearls from my stash finish it off.

The cards will be added to the basket for sale. I've made 30 so far, and just want to make a couple more before I give it to my friend. Fingers crossed the cards will sell well, and i'll be on my way to making the £2,500 I need for our trip to Florida in the summer.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

My Time to Craft - Up in the Air [butterfly]
Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft Challenge - White is White
