Greetings friends.  I was attracted to this sentiment by Lin-Manuel Miranda and knew I wanted to make a card with it.  (I am determined to see his play "Hamilton" at some point in my life).
It is hard to tell from the picture, but the background is actually a combination of two different Cover a card Stamps.  I started with the Distressed Denim design and stamped it with Banana IO ink onto white cardstock.  It gave the paper a splotchy yellow/creamy look.  Next, I stamped Sunburst design on top using Goldenrod IO ink.  To finish the card, I added my sentiment with black ink.
