one adventure leads to another

After I posted yesterday's bright butterfly birthday card, I noticed that I had overlooked the butterfly prompt at Cards in Envy.  When I remembered that I still need sympathy cards, I used the same supplies, with neutrals from The Colour Tree:
stamp sets - Butterfly Basics, Wetlands; ink - Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake; card stock - Soft Suede, Tip Top Taupe, Very Vanilla; Wink of Stella - gold; Tea Lace paper doily; Big Shot with Hexagon Hive embossing folder, Butterfly and Bold Butterfly thinlits

While I had sympathy cards on my mind, I remembered thinking how well the Watercooler Wednesday reflection technique challenge and the House of Cards silhouette prompt would work together:
stamp sets - Teeny Tiny Wishes, World of Dreams; ink - Blackberry Bliss, Elegant Eggplant; card stock - Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant; washi tape - Bohemian; Big Shot with Ovals collection framelits

Edited to add: I forgot to link the stunnin Fine Art America photo, which inspired my card.
