A Dozen Thoughts in Early Espresso

Today's card is a quick one that came together using last week's sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers. Two of the three strips on the left are scraps of our Natural Composition paper sponged with Early Espresso ink. Because this paper has clear embossed designs on it, the ink makes the designs more visible but still retains the natural color behind the pattern. The third strip is a piece of Core'dinations card stock, dry embossed and sanded for texture.

The tag underneath the sentiment is a die cut from our Chalk Talk set of Framelits. The tag is actually a little larger when you cut it. I altered it by cutting it, removing a portion, then reassembling. The Linen Thread hides the join. Slick, huh? ;)
