Just 4 You Card

Here's the card that I came up with tonight. I wanted to use another one of my border punches that I got from Marshalls last week and some scraps that I had near my paper trimmer. I had the bottom panel all set, but then my creativity came to a halt when I was trying to decide what to do with the remaining "white space." I decided on doing some tone-on-tone stamping to add some subtle visual interest. I thought I was going to do some white embossing for the card, but then I realized that having something cream colored would be better to match the cream in the pattered paper. Fortunately, I had some off-white colored alphabet letters from Basic Grey. It was great to dig them out of the bottom of my crafty goodies box and use them.
