    Thank you Mary! I need to make a sympathy card ASAP. A friend’s father died and I think they really would love to have the butterflies on the card. The colors are perfect too. I don’t have that stamp but I am sure I have something that will work. The colors are just perfect and I just received my punches last week. I will be using your pretty card as an example. Thank you!!! What perfect timing.
