I wouldn't normally use so many different types of patterned paper, so this really did challenge me. The "ric-rac" strips were cut from Plantin schoolbook. The stamp is one I've had for ages, and I embossed it with black sparkle embossing powder. I always struggle to know how to add text, and wish I had better handwriting...I must try computer-generated text...watch this space!! The text is continued inside the card to say "are in the pink".
