"Footprints in the Sand"

Congratulations, Paula Tracey!!!! This card is for Feature Stamper Challenge at SCS (FS98). Paula is this week's featured stamper. I loved perusing her gallery. I chose this card to case.

I changed the colors, but left the layout. I kept the card simple, but I did add a few flowers because Paula's card has a flower. I chose to use a poem as the focal image on my card. It is one of my favorite poems. I used ODBD stamp set Footprints in the Sand. I used a piece of printed dp for the background. My dp allow me to add another color instead of keeping it monochromatic like Paula did hers. I kept my card elements as simple as possible in keeping with the elegant simplicity of Paula's. I sponged the edges of the poem with Ranger antique linen because Paula's card appears to use a technique on the flower so I added some sponging to mine. What do you think?
