good morning.another scheduled post so i hope its working :)
hopefully we are having a fab time in devon and its also my wedding anniversary and birthday this week so am hoping to find some craft shops whilst i am away :)
so todays card is another clean and simple one and not a promarker in site.
i have used the papermania chatsworth stamp set for this one.i have handstamped the backing paper with a stamp from the set with memento ink in cocoa.mounted onto brown card and all edges distressed.the lamp and sentiment also from the set.i have added some lush brown velvet ribbon and a rose and voila.simples.

the image,oh and i punched the edge with my ms doily punch.
and a sideways view.
thanks for popping by.

hope you are all well and the weather is nice.
