With deepest sympathy at this difficult time

This is a commissioned  sympathy card that I was asked to make a while ago. The background was created on lilac paper randomly stamping one of my favourite Penny Black stamps called sparklers inked with memento grape jelly. I also stamped with the Penny Black butterfly edge stamp, also inked with the grape jelly. The panel with the lilies was upcycled from an old card, the ribbon with tiny silver studs was from Hobbycraft. I added the sentiment circle and the butterflies with 3D wings from Docrafts.

Colours are for Color my heart 353:

and The rainbow card challenge 8: passion for purple (my favourite crafting colour)
