I have several friends right now suffering the loss of a loved one so I pulled out my Sweet N Sassy stamp sets. For the inside, I used SNSS Sympathy Innies. I really like this set because I don't always know what to say.
The butterfly is from the SNSS New Creature stamp set and the sentiment is from the Lovely Lotus stamp set.
Carey has a beautiful sketch this week for us with SC660. Most people have a reason for flipping the sketch when they flip them, it works better for their image, etc, etc. I do NOT have a good reason. I had the sketch on my computer screen the entire time I was creating.....and just somehow flipped the triangles! Maybe it was just a meant to be a thing. :)
I played along with this week's CC650 Soft Cake with a Tranquil Twist and used the first color palette. I colored the butterfly with the Chameleon Color Tones markers and blending Color Tops in colors close to the CC colors.
I have more photos on my blog including colors listed.

Angie, so sorry to hear about your friends! I'm sure this fantastic card will lift someone's spirits! The butterfly is absolutely gorgeous as is the "splattered" panel and lovely dp. You did a great job combining the two challenges!

This is a really beautiful serene card. I'm not sure if you used patterned paper or stenciled some yourself, but I love the choices. The splatters as background for the butterfly are very pretty as well.
