In our stamp group when we have a week of challenges sometimes the person holding the challenge will put all the names of those that participated in the challenge in a hat and draw a name and send that person a little something, and Heidi, sent me this Stamp set which has a lot of little images some with sentiments included and this is my first time using it. I don't often use the smaller decorative dies on my cards but these little stamps are just perfect to use the smaller dies in my spellbinder sets.
I started off using the sketch by Mojo Monday number 210, but then I ended up leaving out some so it isn't quite like the sketch. I love sketches when I am in need of a card and nothing is coming to mind right away, great jumping off point.
I thought the flower in the stamp was quite close to the flowers in the paper. I inked the die while the paper was still in the die to add the red touches to the ends, I so wanted to add more shading around with inking but I made myself stop there, LOL!

Oh my I forgot to right down the name of the paper pack I used for this, if anyone is interested let me know and I will look it up for you.
It is going to turn HOT again tomorrow but the last couple of days I sure have enjoyed having the doors open, reminding us that Autumn season is on it's way :)
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in today and hope your week is off to a great start!
