Sympathy card for a friend.
I created a card similar to this one back in 2010 – it’s hard to believe it’s been that long! I changed the color of the flowers to yellow and added some glitter to the centers using a two-way glue pen.

This card is for a friend who told me about the job I’m currently in. I’ll be celebrating my one-year anniversary in this position in just a little over a week. Accepting this job has been one of THE BEST decisions I’ve ever made and if it wasn’t for her, I would not be in this position. I am very, very grateful for her!
I cased one of my own cards found here (directions on how to create the flower are in this previous post). For today’s card, I used the 1-1/4” Scallop Circle Punch, rather than the 7/8” punch. To add sparkle to the flower and butterfly, I applied adhesive using a 2-Way Glue Pen and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on them.
