FMS #54 Butterfly Memories

Greetings and happy Wednesday to you! How about a great sketch to start off your day?
This week's sketch comes from the talented Jen T. I changed my card up just a bit from the sketch, but still followed the basic lines. I wanted to make a sympathy card to send to a friend and I pulled out my Blessings from Heaven and Papillon Potpourri sets.
I was inspired by a color challenge from the Fab Friday blog. These colors are so serene and work perfectly for a sympathy or thinking of you card.
I wanted to keep my butterflies muted, but I decided to add a few delicate Basic Pearls to add some dimension. I also pulled out some of my retired Whisper White satin ribbon, which gave this card just the right touch of understated elegance.

Stop by the Freshly Made Sketches blog to be inpsired by the rest of the design team and to share your creation. 'Bye for now!
