Subtle Thanks

Here's another card using DCWV Citrus paper.    Since the pattern was so bold, I wanted to do something simple up the top and it ended up being quite simple.  The text on this Inkadinkado stamp isn't simple, but embossing it in clear ink makes it barely stand out.  Good or bad?  I'm still up in the air about it!!
Thanks for your visit!

I think the stamp look perfect! It's nice how it blends in with the background...and a really lovely paper you used too! I can see why you love it so, hehe. :)

Hmmm...I can see what you were going for. Did you put some distressing on the edges? If the 'thanks' was just a shade or two darker I think it would be good. As it is, I think it is just a little too subtle. Otherwise, I would have probably just stamped in white which is my new favorite thing at the moment.
