Autumn Sympathy

I am so in love with my new Big Leaves from Kitchen Sink Stamps. It is such fun to layer these gorgeous autumn colors one on top of the other and see what beautiful fall leaves emerge!

For today's sympathy card I stamped the leaves on white card stock from PaperTrey Ink and then added the framed, vellum sentiment from Kitchen Sink's Words of Comfort & Joy over them.
