My Out on a Limb Playground Activity of the Week submission with the versatile Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set.

Before I decided to add a layer of Copper Foil Sheets, the base of the card was Soft Suede. The small border of copper did not stand out well against Soft Suede or Cajun Craze. It is pretty sharp against Very Vanilla.
