Your hand in mine

I've always admired the work of Nancy Maxwell James, so cased one of her cards for the Created byHand challenge on Love Quotes. This is, after all, a stamp designed by her.

I wanted to fade all the colours, particularly the orange mat card, so distressed everything with the dabber (even the brads). I don't think you can see the lacy paper around the feature stamp unless you go in for a close up. I spritzed a text stamp which has left the diagonal white marks on the background.
