Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #76

Happy Wednesday!  Can you believe it's Wednesday already?  How does that happen so fast?  We are currently counting down the hours until Daddy comes home at our house!!!  My husband has been on a small business trip but whenever he's out of town my boys seem to go crazy!  The sure do miss him when he's gone!  

Another Wednesday means another sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Along with a new sketch comes a new look to the blog and some new designers!  Welcome Narelle and Amy!!!  We are so happy you've joined us!!!    The fabulous Linda Suarez has a great sketch for us this week.  I must say I had fun with this one!

I needed a sympathy card for family friends who lost a cherished Grandma and Great Grandma.  I wanted to keep it simple and you all know how I feel about Very Vanilla, butterflies and pearls!

I decided to try the butterflies in gold and loved the finished look!  They may be too much for some...but I do love gold!

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold
Stamps: Papillon Potpourri, Teeny Tiny Wishes
