Paper Crafter's Library when she created her thank you card. In the center of my card I created a black circle with a punched border using a Blue Hills Studio Honor punch. I printed the sentiment and embossed it as I did on the background paper. I also added some small gems around the circle. The card base is blue cardstock. I used the same blue cardstock to cut two strips that I added to a strip of black cardstock. I adhered it across the center of the card behind the circular embellishment. I think the bright busy background on my card was toned down by using this stamping technique. It would have been better with a background stamp that has more text, but I don't have that sort of stamp yet.
