With Sympathy - for Great Impressions Stamps

Today is my day to post on the Great Impressions Stamps blog -- always a great pleasure for me!  I LOVE their stamps!

I needed a sympathy card awhile back, and I wanted it to be beautiful.  I naturally reached for my Great Impressions Stamps to create it...

The Butterfly Frame (H226) and the With Sympathy (B206) seemed like a perfect combination.  I stamped the H226- Butterfly Frame onto Carta Bella Kraft card stock, then colored it with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor pencils.  I then fussy cut the frame. 

6x6 papers are by My Mind's Eye - Hello, Gorgeous.  Lace/gem trim is from Prima Marketing.

Did you join in the Great Impressions Stamps Anything Goes challenge this month?  There's another one starting very soon!
