Several things inspired me today to create this card.  My friend, Barb, sent me the Penny Black stamp and CAS-ology's challenge this week was "letter" - a post card is just a little letter, right??  I first stamped the HA post card in black on some cream cardstock and then overstamped with the PB stamp (which didn't all stamp very well - my fault not the stamp).  So stamped the part with the flower again, colored it with copics, fussy cut and put it over the unstamped part.  Colored a few of the leaves, cut out the post card and put it on the card base.  Lastly, added some ribbon and a few gemstones. I had made a similar card a few years ago - it's a good one to have on hand to add any sort of greeting on the inside.
Stamps: HA S5665; PB "Botanical Notes"
Inks: Copics - E51, E53, YG91, YG95; HA AF213
Other: May Arts silk ribbon; HA 607 paper
