Here is my take on the card. I used a similar inking/stencil technique for the background, but changed up the color scheme, using Distress Inks in Dried Marigold, Wild Honey, and Fired Brick. The 90+ temps today inspired me to use a warm color scheme, LOL!
Instead of the black mat, I cut a black frame element from the Cricut Small Talk Frames & Tags cartridge, which also incorporated the sentiment. I added a little glitter to the words with some Wink of Stella pens, but it doesn't show up in the photo.
