Serenity Sympathy cards w/Jenni Bowlin butterflies

   I have no sympathy cards in my stash, and my subconscious has been working on an idea for days.  My inspiration came from my package of Jenni Bowlin butterflies.  I used one out of the package last year, but four more remained in the package.  I decided I should try to use them all up.  Then this weekend I perused my 6x6 pads and I realized that I had never cut into my BoBunny "Serenity" papers.  I think they go well together, don't you?  I added some dry embossing below the papers (see picture above).


 Here is my set of four:

These papers are gorgeous!


The 6x6 BoBunny "Serenity" was purchased at Shop Pumpkin Spice.  My Jenni Bowlin butterflies were included in my Artful Delight kit (August 2011).  The embossing border is Cuttlebug "Winter Borders" and the sentiment is by Stampin' Up!

Happy Tuesday!

Just beautiful June.
I love that paper stack ( I have it, I just love what you did with the butterflies so serene, hence the name.

Oh June, these are lovely. Maybe it's my age or the fact we have a lot of older folks at church, but I seem to need sympathy cards quite often. It's always a good idea to have a stash of them... when the time comes that you need one, they aren't always an easy card to put together.
Thanks for the inspiration.
Hugs!
