petite flowers Thinking of you

A friend's husband whom I knew well, suddenly passed away with a pulmonary embolism after surgery and I wanted to send her a card letting her know that I was thinking about her. 
The base card is pink pirouette with whisper white embossed with Framed tulip EF and stamped with the oval from Oh, Hello in Pink Pirouette. I stamped thinking of you in Soft suede onto  5 1/2x 5/8" strip of Pink pirouette CS with the edged punched with the hexagon punch.  I stamped several petite flowers on a scrap piece of whisper white and then some four sided flowers using the itty bitty shapes.  Cut some Little Leaves  with the Sizzlits from Pear Pizazz cardstock. I used liquid multipurpose glue to shape the leaves a bit around the stamped oval to frame it a bit.  Leave some of the leaves free to shape around the flowers.  I punched out the petite flowers and mounted it using dimensionals and the Itty bitty shapes using dimensionals and multipurpose glue for variable heights.
Stamp the butterfly onto a scrap piece of whisper white and then punch it out.  I used the pick pirouette marker to   add a little bit of color to the wings and the pear pizazz to the body of the butterfly to continue the card around the card.  Mount with a dimensional dot cut in half.
Pretty simple card that just looks hard- We will be making this card as one of the May projects-
