Sympathy Card

I don't like to make sympathy cards at all, but who does.  I need one right now for a cousin who's boyfriend was killed in a car accident.  I used the Christian Sympathy digital stamp set just released this month from Clear Dollar Stamps.  The butterflies are also from Clear Dollar Stamps.  That is an acrylic set called Beautiful Butterflies it is an old set. 
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
Critter Sketch - Sketch
Created With Love - Sympathy
Paper Playtime - Polka dots with sentiment
The Pink Elephant - Sympathy
Use Your Stuff - Polka dots (old flowers, lace, and pearl center)
Sisterhood of Crafters - Sympathy
The Play Date - Black, white, with splash of lime
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
