Shabby sympathy card

I was tasked to create a sympathy card for the ladies in my bowling league to sign - one of our members lost her sister.  Since I had the Shabby Vintage paper handy, I decided to use it for a background.
The Certainly Celery cardstock picks up the Peeled Paint color in the background.  the paper in the center rectangle is the reverse side of the larger background piece.  The stamp is an old TAC stamp - I always like to use butterflies on sympathy cards, or dragonflies if it is for a man - they are so symbolic of death as rebirth, a very uplifting thought when one loses someone special.

Challenges:
Dream Valley Challenges - animal
Fashionable Stamping - butterflies
2 Sisters - embossing
So Artful - colors
Twisted Sketches - sketch (and this is the first time I've used the blue in this paper stack)
