All of my poor, departed, much missed background stamps -- Print Pattern, Canvas, French Script and Weathered

I made this card for my sister-in-law who's just been diagnosed with breast cancer at the time.

I layered Always Artichoke, Rose Red, Kraft, and Vanilla cs. The Kraft layer is stamped with Print Pattern in Rose Red craft ink, then overstamped with Weathered in Sahara Sand. The Always Artichoke layer is stamped with both French Script and Canvas in AA, then with the spatter pattern from Itty Bitty Backgrounds in both Chocolate Chip classic ink and White craft.

The central image was stamped on Vanilla cs. I drew the notebook lines on it using a ruler and my Bordering Blue marker on both sides, then I punched the edge with the Spiral punch to make it look like a page ripped out of a notebook. The central image is lightly overstamped with Canvas and the spatter from IBB in Sahara Sand. The image is outlined in Sahara Sand and Always Artichoke. The edges are sponged with AA.
