Here is another text background, done this time over Kraft cardstock . . .

I started this one with the idea of doing an Old School layout:  no die cutting machine was to be used, just stamping and maybe some fussy cutting.  Seven dies and one embossing folder later, I dimly perceived that I'd left that plan far behind.  What can I say:  the ability to do the kind of intricate cutting that only dies can achieve still thrills me to the gills and I just cannot resist the chance to play with these tools on my cards . . .
