My Sandown Rose Bargain

Hi All,
 
Just a quick post as I am playing with my new Lili of the Valley stamps! As I worked hard today, I feel I deserve a bit of playtime.
 
This is a card I call a stock card. As I make cards to sell for my charity, I have to make some simple cards to suit all ages and different tastes. 
 
I bought this stamp at the Sandown Park Craft Fair. It's made by The Stamp Barn and made in Canada. I had been wanting a big rose stamp, as they are so useful for all occasions. And what a bargain!! It was reduced from £10 to £2!! I would have been mad not to buy it.
 
It stamped beautifully and I coloured it with Spectrum Noir pens. I added a little drop of Glossy Accents to a petal as a rain drop.
 
The Dies I used to cut out the card and the mats are from Go Create, I bought from The Craft Barn at Lingfield, Surrey.
 

 
Sorry it is a short post tonight but my Distress Inks and my new stamps are calling me!
 
Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments. Also thank you to my 2 new followers taking the time to join my blog.
 
Hugs,
Carol S.xx
