One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Colour Q # 343

I am looking at challenges for more sympathy inspiration.
I found one at the Colour Q # 343.
I saw this technique HERE and loved it and thought it would be perfect for a sympathy card.

stamps & die: HA Tall wheat, PTI Asian Fusion, PTI Happy Trails (butterfly)
distress inks:  abandoned cora, scattered straw
washi tape, sequins 
I layered the butterfly three times before adhering it into the space
While I was at it, I decided to make three of them, here are the other two:
I changed up the colors, but at least I have three sympathy cards now!



Heart Hugs, friends!
