With Sympathy Card

Ok I just had to make this card.
Credit for the idea goes to Jeannie over at and Bobby and Jill over at  I loved their cards.  If you haven't seen their blogs you should check them out.  The are both wonderful and inspiring. 
I thought this would make a beautiful sympathy card. 
So here is my version of their cards.
Cartridges used: Create A Critter, Pooh and Friends, Speaking of Fall,
Storybook, Walk in my Garden and Wild Card.
The card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" in a beige cardstock.
The maroon cardstock is cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".
The flower paper is cut at 5 1/4" x 4".
The maroon and flower paper are from the Paper Studio Mirabelle paper stack.  This is a very beautiful and elegant stack.  I love the papers in it.
Create A Critter: I used this cartridge to cut the butterfly on the inside of this card.  It is found on page 64 and is cut at 1".
Pooh and Friends:  I used this cartridge to cut the butterfly on the front of the card.  It is found on page 24 and is also cut at 1".
Speaking of Fall:  All of the leaves are from this cartridge all cut at 2 1/8" found on pages 19, 20, and 36.
StoryBook:  I cut the frame 2 times in the maroon paper and 2 times in the beige paper.  They are all cut at 3 1/2" and are found on page 66.
Walk in my Garden:  The flowers are all cut at 1/2" and are found on page 30. 
Cut 15 for the front of the card and 6 more for the inside of the card.
Wild Card:  With Sympathy is cut at 6 3/8" and is found on page 32.
I inked around all of the edges and added Icicle Stickles to the butterflies and to the centers of all of the flowers.  Used a black gel pen to add detail to the center of all of the flowers and a green gel pen to add detail to all of the leaves.
