Sympathy Card

This is my first attempt at a sympathy card.  I wanted it to be kind of simple, because I didn't think it would be appropriate for it to be flashy.  I made the butterfly from Wall Decor and More and put it over an embossed paper that I had embossed with D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder.  I added some fabric ribbon from American Crafts for a little pop of color.

The inside has the sentiment With Sympathy from Calligraphy Collection.  I spent so much time and paper trying to find a size sentiment that wasn't too huge but also wouldn't rip when I took it off the mat.  It's still a little bigger than I wanted, but that's ok.  I may stick with more stamped sentiments on sympathy cards from here on out.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
