This one is a sympathy card and I made a stamping collage using most (all?) the stamps from French Foliage, and edged the inside in a similar fashion. The words are "How lucky I am to have known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to", taken from the Summer Solstice stamp set, also retiring soon.
My collage piece is layered onto Natural Composition Specialty and although it is grouped with the Designer Series Papers, is actually quite solid, but I've also layered that onto Early Espresso card.
The challenge at Just Add Ink this week is to add.......woodgrain. There are some lovely examples over there, everyone has a different way to interpret this challenge - all inspirational!
Have a lovely weekend
