Grab and Go #7 for Speedy the Cat challenge #39 sympathy

As I'm digging through my large collection of stamps I came across this one.  This was one of the first that I had purchased from a store instead of a SU party.  I remember the technique and always thought it was pretty.  You emboss with white on the front of the vellum and then turn it over and color it.  It is such a beautiful and soft look.  I don't remember how we attached the vellum to the CS though b/c this time the adhesive showed through.  Thus the reason for the scalloped frame. (aha!) The verse inside simply says "Remember the lilies."  It's a favorite verse of mine and comforting to think about.  Maybe that's why the Lily is my favorite flower. GRAB and GO--one LARGE stamp accounted for Chllnge: Speedy the Cat # 39 Make a SympathyCard Thanks for looking.
