Deepest Sympathy

So I've been re-organizing my 6x6 papers, taking them out of their pads, trimming off any toppers, and putting them each in quart sized ziplocks.  As I go thru them, I've been using them each (that's why you've seen so many posts lately) and challenging myself to use all this beautiful paper I've been collecting.

This sketch is courtesy of JustUsGirls Challenges but I did need to change it a bit, the rectangle use to be a circle and they may have wanted a sentiment on the front but it wan't necessary IMO

Black Ribbon - My Mind's Eye Lush

Distressing Ink - Tim Holtz Black Soot
