I bought this hibiscus stamp while on vacation in Hawaii last February. It was screaming "ink me, ink me", so I decided I better make a card with this stamp so I could get some sleep tonight! I'm sure you have all purchased stamps then "the best laid plans of mice and men".....come on admit it...the stamps have "gone astray".

This card is for the Card Patterns challenge and the 'red & aqua' challenge at Our Creative Corner.

The stamp is from Island Paperie and it was made in HAWAII (not China). Coloring courtesy of Copic, embossing folder is Sizzix, die cuts are Nestabilities, floral paper DCWV, ribbon from JoAnn's and a supporting role from Stickles.

Here's the inspirational sketch for this card.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
