Our Craft Lounge Sketch Challenge

It's time once again for a sketch challenge over at Our Craft Lounge.  See the sketch and the rules, go  here .
They do a monthly drawing for a free stamp set from OCL. 
I am officially crafting 2 handed now.  The sutures and pin are out of my hand.  The right is pretty tight and weak but moving better every day!  The pic shows the pin (and hole) and the scar that I have to remind me to 'keep the rubber down' while on my motorcycle.  LOL
My card today is for my friends Danna and Bill who lost their father and granddad this past week.  I had actually made a sympathy card for the first time in months the morning that he passed.  Little did I know that I would use it so soon.  In his honor, I have made another (to fit the sketch) and let Danna and Bill know that I am thinking of them.
The stamp set:  Natures Notes from OCL
Coloring:  Copics, Ranger Alcohol Inks, Copper Embossing Powder
and Memento Rich Cocoa dye ink.
Bling:  Coffee Bean Brown sparkly-fluff, dazzling diamonds glitter, inky-dinky drops.  The ribbons are both from GARAGE SALES!  Gotta love that!
Die Cuts:  Nestibilities
DP:  Printed digital paper from Sharon B. at 'Steady On'
The butterflies were embossed with copper powder on some glossly white cardstock that I had alcohol inked with pinks and purples (hard to see in the photo)
The butterflies, the flowers and the sentiment are all on pop dots for dimension.
This card will also be posted for: (please visit their sites)
The Stamp Man Challenges:  2 colors (pink and brown)
Lollipop Crafts:  Anything goes
