Sentimental Sundays....Deepest Sympathy

Good morning-
I sure hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!

It's time for another Sentimental Sundays Challenge!!!
This weeks challenge is:
Sympathy or Thinking of you
Here is my card sample for this weeks challenge:
Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Grey and cream); Patterned paper: Authentique:Promenade; Frame: K& Co:Life's Journey;
Butterfly: Jenni Bowlin: Black Embellished Butterflies, Stamps: Hero Arts: Delicate Leaf Cluster (CL477), Everyday Sayings (CL342);
Medium: Copic; Brads, Making Memories; Beads: Recollection: Clear Micro beads; Other: Doilie, Satin Ribbon
I really love how this card came together!!
The beautiful butterfly on the card was colored with Copic and then I applied a thin layer of glossy accent and covered it with clear micro beads.  Really love the results!
So there you have it my friends.
I hope that you get a chance to play along this week and I look forward
to coming by and visiting!
