This card is for CC223 of Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, and Whisper White and for WT223 using text in your card.
Now this was difficult for me in that I love so many fonts, which one to choose? And how to best show it off? I went with that ol' faithful, Poor Richard. And of course text made me thing of one of my favorite quotes (which is framed on my bookshelf):
"The truly cultured are capable of owning thousands of unread books without losing their composure or their desire for more. -Gabriel Zaid"
(I think you could also change "cultured" to "crafty" and "unread books" to "uninked stamps" for a perfect SCS card.)
I think it would be a great card to use when giving an amazon or B&N gift card!
Due to my lack of ruby red paper, I printed the border in ruby red around the text box, and inked around the edges of the quote. The brackets I added in word (they are in the autoshape section), and I just followed their lines when I cut out the quote.
Two fun challenges! Thanks, ladies!

Wait - are you an English lit. teacher? (Why did I think you were a fellow math jock like me?) I love the books listed in the text and that quote - it could easily apply to stamps as well, don't you think? ;)
