Letters and flowers

'Letters and flowers' is the name of the Penny Black stamp I've used, simply inking with memento tuxedo black and stamping on to a scrap of striped blue and white paper.

I've followed Daniele's sketch for Sketch n stash 81, using up old supplies - the padded fabric hearts have been in the box for some time, as has the lace and ribbon. The background paper is 7 gypsies baja journey, the spotted paper is a piece out of my offcuts box. This is the sketch:
