Deepest Sympathy

Hello - I am back with another card to share, created using some of the hand designed paper from my dear friend and artist Laura Kirste.


 The paper is created using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Inks.  The images are retired stamps also designed by Laura Kirste.

The sentiment has been stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink full ink pad in Onyx Black and layered into the Gold Majesty Circles Spellbinders® Imperial Gold die templates #4 - remembering Spellbinders number their Dies from the smallest to the largest - the smallest being #1.

My flower has been cut from some lace remnants I have been given and a paper rose has been added to the center.

Lots of details but not too bulky for posting.

This card is for the following challenges: 
Lady Anne's Stamp Challenge - anything goes 
Simon Says Stamp - must stamp 
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Something Blue 
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes No Twist this Week. 
Addicted to Stamps and More - Anything goes
 Crafter's Cafe - Favorite Craft Item (Spellbinders Dies)
