Sympathy Card ~ You Are In My Thoughts

I made this card for a co-worker.
Her husband was hit and killed by an SUV on Wednesday.
It has been a difficult week.
Butterflies always remind me that the loved one
has now been freed of their earthly pain and
their souls are free to comfort us when we need it.
I hope this card will bring her and their four children a little comfort.


*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Embossed using the Darice Butterflies In Corner folder.
*Sentiment from Hero Arts.
*Rhinestones from Studio G.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
Crafty hugs,
D~
