With Sympathy

Hello friends!!! Hope you enjoyed the holidays....now it is back to the grind of work and less crafting :( I wanted to participate in Ellen Hutson's CLASSroom challenge of using a Hero Arts Clear stamp, it is called  Ellen Hutson LLC Hero Arts Clear Take 'n Make....not too hard to do....I have collected a good few Hero Arts stamps over the years:) LOVE this company!!
For this card I made my own background with the diamond shaped stamp and little flower from the set CL549 Butterflies and Wildflowers...feels so good to use these little stamps, for I tend not to do so :)

The grid paper is from Papertrey ink. The frame and sentiment are also from Hero Arts clear sets CL476.


I am also going to enter this in Simon Says Stamp "Anything Goes" Challenge :)

Thanks again for stopping by to visit!!!
Hugs, TRace
