With Sympathy- Three Challenges in One

Hi Stampers!         
I created this card for three challenges- the CCMC143 Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge (http://www.createwithconnieandmary.com), the Pals Paper Arts PPA86 Embossing Challenge (http://www.palspaperarts.com/ ) and the Splitcoast Stampers CC315 Saffron  Pear Roses Color Challenge. 

If you have time, check out all of the samples at each of these sites- there are so many variations and beautiful cards! 

FYI- This card really sparkles IRL and was difficult to photograph (it seems to me that pinks and reds do not photograph as well as I would like):-)
To create this card:
Stamp the butterfly image with Basic Black onto Whisper White.  Punch out one butterfly with the 2 1/2” XL Circle Punch and two butterflies with the XL Tag Punch. Color the butterflies with SU! Markers in So Saffron, Regal Rose and Basic Black and sponge the edges and throughout the entire image to tone done the white with a SU! Crumb Cake marker.  Use the Color Spritzer Tool with the Crumb Cake and Regal Rose to further “antique” the images and apply 2-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds.  Mount onto Basic Black layers punched with the same punches as above.
Use the Big Shot and emboss a piece of Pear Pizzazz DSP with the Finial Press EF and a piece of Regal Rose with the Vintage Wallpaper EF.  Lightly sand the DSP layer with the Sanding Block to expose the white core.  
Punch the lower edge of the Basic Black layer with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and adhere pearls.  Layer the embossed DSP, mount the butterfly images with dimensionals and attach the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon.
Stamp Sets:  Flores Suaves, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Basic Black, SU! Markers- Basic Black, Regal Rose, So Saffron
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Regal Rose, Pear Pizzazz DSP
Accessories:  Big Shot, Finial Press and Vintage Wallpaper EF, Sanding Block, Sponge Daubers, Pearls, Dazzling Diamonds, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon, 2 1/2” XL Circle, XL Tag and Curly XL Punches
Thanks again for stopping by – have a blessed week!
