I started this card with the stamp, which is from JustRite. As for the color, that just kinda happened as I went along. It was first going to be brown, but the silver embossing (and I'm a silver girl anyway rather than gold) was calling for attention to be used. Then the quest for the perfect paper to go along with my silver tag. I found it in a DCWV mat stack I got when I wanted to try out a black/white card. For the record, this is finally my first one.
The result turned out better than I thought it would and I'm pleased to be able to give this card to my friends. :)
