Tilda Sympathy Card

Here's a card I just finished and it was made with several challenges in mind.  Charisma Cardz and 4 Craft Chicks were asking for sympathy cards so that was the theme for this one.  I followed the sketch for Stampin' for the Weekend, which also had a twist of butterflies.  I love how it turned out.  The paper I used was Halloween paper from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I'm not sure of the name of it though because I used up some scraps.  I colored Tilda in with my Copics, distressed the edges with Black Soot and cut her out with my Oval Spellbinders.  The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch and I'm unsure of the manufacturer of either of my stamps because the label has been worn off.

Here's another angle:

Here's the inside:

And finally, a closer picture of the sentiment.  I hope you like it!
