Swirls and stamping

This is a very simple card using a background card from the Kanban Gentleman's Journal kit that already has gold foiled swirls on it. I stamped a few of the Indigo Blu stamps from the 'take the time' set, using memento rich cocoa - it didn't stamp too clearly on this card, but I rather like the slightly 'old' look that it's produced. As there is a lot of gold foiling on this card it's one of those that's difficult to photograph.

This is for:
