Nate's ABCs Sympathy card

Good Morning everyone! I recently bought Nate's ABCs and it is such a cute cartridge! I love the little scenes in it. One of my close friends recently lost an aunt so I decided to make her a sympathy card using this cartridge.

Recipe: A2 card folded landscape using So Saffron from Stampin Up. Layer is from My Minds Eye, Stella & Rose, Hattie 6X6 paper pad. Image is cut at 3.5". Grass part is from Nana's Nursery, Baby Boy and the rest are from scraps in my stash. The stamp is from Stampin Up Teeny Tiny Wishes and I used Staz On Timber Brown ink. The butterfly by the sentiment is from Martha Stewart's 3 in 1 butterfly punch. I used Waterfall and Eucalyptus Stickles to accent the butterfly and the leaves on the plant. Ribbon is from my stash. The cut out for the eye on the snail was entirely too small, so I used a white gel pen instead. I also did a little doodling with it.

So that's my card. I really like it. I am entering it into a few challenges and contests for this week:
Celebrate The Occasion challenge #32 which is any type of card as long as you use ribbon.
Cricut Blog World Card Making Day Contest.
Paper Sundaes Challenge #88 which is Anything Goes.

Thank you for stopping by and commenting. As always, have a great day!
