I just finished this card. I feel it needs a "little something" but I'm not sure what. Perhaps a sentiment, but when I would go to add something else I just couldn't do it--I felt like "less is more" in this case. I'm still trying to come up with other stuff for this stamp--it's so beautiful. I can't help but daydream when I look at it. . .

I like it just the way it is and wouldn't add anything. It looks like a framed painting the way you have it matted. Very nice job! I'm going to copy this someday.

This is so beautiful!!! If you feel you want to add something what about a BG stamp like Canvas or Antique Cracking or the "bricks" from Paint Prints in the same color as the CS? It really is lovely as is, but I'm like you and would tend to add something.

Your watercoloring is beautiful. You could add French Script across one side, or a rustic-type background. I've been thinking about using the new Timeworn Trim for a BG on this set -- would help if my sets would arrive!

Leave it alone - it's perfect as is. Write a note inside saying, "Wish you were here!" Then add faux postage from Lucerne on the envy, and you've got it! Could fool anyone into thinking you are really there!
