Amazing Grace is one of my favorite hymns. Chris Tomlin has a wonderful version of it that I love listening to. This is an ODBD stamp that hadn't seen ink until today. As you can tell, I distressed the image with Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Tea Dye inks. I torn the upper left corners and tried to make them look like they survived a fire. I rolled the edges of the upper right corner.
Now, here is my question. What embellishments would you put on this card? I kept staring at it last night and couldn't figure out what to use. Any suggestions?????

Sissy, this is one of my favorite songs, especially the last stanza...." when we've been there 10,000 years"..... What a beauty to bring to tea my friend. I see your heart all over this! Lymi

A perfect challenge for you to ink this up - and I know the Chris Tomlin version too :D. I wouldn't add any embellishments - I can understand you might feel it looks plain, but it certainly doesn't at all look unfinished.
