A blog named hero #Challenge 7

Hi there! The challenge at A blog named hero is to Stretch your stamps and to make two cards with one stamp. I needed a card for my nan's 80th birthday and I was really struggling with a design until I saw this stamp beautifully coloured on a blog (please if it was yours let me know - I can't find you again ) and I wanted to make a card just like it. I have had this stamp for ages and never used it - but now I just love it:) What wonderful inspiration all our fellow crafter are - thanks to you all:)

Thanks for your visit today - Hugs x x

To play along please visit:

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps - Large flower background, CL611 & CL493
              Distress inks - Aged Mahogany, Worn lipstick
              Distress markers - Shabby shutters and peeled paint

I love your cards, Karen! I have this background stamp, and it is this type of versatility that drew me to it in the first place. Gorgeous!
