Praying for you and your family

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi Everyone!
I hope you are all having a wonderful week and ready for the weekend~
A few weeks ago, I noticed a few of my blogger buddies were making "box cards".  I needed to make a sympathy card and thought I would try making one of these since it was new to me. It was really easy and different from your normal A2 card. I really like how fast they go together! 
You should give it a try :)
 I followed the video provided by My Creative Time. The papers I used are from Lasting 
Impressions ~Periwinkle and Kiwi~pretty color combination :)
The pretty flourish is the Vignette Floral Branch  metal die. The butterfly metal dies are Murana  and Samirah all from Simon Says. I added a little Wink of Stella to them for a shimmery effect along with some rhinestones.  Isn't it just beautiful?
You also could easily change out the sentiment and this could be used for any occasion
A double bow was created with goblin green crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM. The sentiment is stamped with The Deepest Sympathy stamp set from My Craft Spot.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Krafty Girls Challenge #27 Anything Goes
2.) DL.ART July Linky Party
3.) Word Art Wednesday Challenge #141 Anything Goes
