This will be a quick post. I am trying to get packing for a weekend camping trip and I have barely started yet. We were dealing with a death in the family and had all of that stuff to deal with this week, so packing got put to the wayside! Oh well...busy day today.
I needed a sympathy card for my husband's Aunt...it was her husband (my husband's Uncle) that passed away, so I decided to face the Mojo Monday Sketch #90 head-on...this one intimidated me a little bit. Probably because it is not something I would probably ever put together on my own! But that is what sketch challenges are all about.
I found the sentiment in the Verve Stamps Beautiful You set to be fitting. I don't think it was what was intended for the sentiment, but it struck a cord with me that it seemed fitting for a death...the caterpillar being our physical bodies here on earth and the morphing into a butterfly being what could be viewed as our death, but really being our reunion with God in heaven. Like I said, not sure that is what was meant by it, but I liked the thought.
I used the DSP Parisian Breeze from Stampin' Up!...I like the Specialty Designer Paper. This was my first time using it...it is heavier weight and has a nice texture to it! The butterfly was taken from an old retired set, Botanicals. I finished that butterfly off with some Crystal Effects just to make it pop a little bit more.
Well not sure there is much else to say...have a great weekend! Off to pack!
