I have a box of letters that was an RAK from my cousin Cheryl in CA. I pulled out the ampersand, sanded it off (reliques should not be shiny) and embossed it with Tarnished Gold and Verdigris embossing powder, and popped it up on a piece of textures CS. I couldn't think of another thing that would go with it.
When you see an Ampersand, there's always more coming, and the inside of the card says...
"In this difficult time, know that you are loved and appreciated and remember to take care of yourself too."
So I think the front has enough. What do you think?

Beautiful CAS card! I wondered if anyone would use any of the letters and how they could possibly use them! Wow!!! You sure figured it out! LOVE the aged "patina" look with the perfect distressing and embossing powder colors you used! LOVE it!!!

I think just that symbol says it all..love how you gave it a tarnished and aged look. I think I would like your house if you have similar items just around..lol. I, too, found a few items I had in my house that I"d picked up at antique stores or sales.
