The sun us out again today after a wild storm last night. Sunny days make me think of butterflies and flowers. This week's challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments call for you to use the dazzling diamond dust technique.
I made the panel with the fading ink and knew I wanted a dimensional butterfly on it as well. What goes better with butterflies than shimmer?
I was going to add a birthday sentiment, but thought that the dark pallet would work well for a sympathy card. I don't really like making cards that say "With Sympathy" because I think it's a little morbid to have those hanging around as "just in case" cards. The phrase from Herb Expressions fits the bill nicely, but would also be used for someone going through a tough time. Still a bit of a downer, but not so much as sympathy.
