You Are So Special

This pretty card really shows off the stamp set and dies found in the Tasteful Touches Bundle. For me there is something about a white card and I just love the look of a white embossed sentiment on any color cardstock, but especially black. Yvonne Spikmans-Van Bruggen nailed both in her original design of this card. Hard to believe without the gems, this beauty is just stamps, ink and paper!
