Duck in the bull rushes

I bought a duck and bull rushes set of stamps from Clarity Stamps some time ago and still hadn't inked them up until today. I've stamped them on to a ready made shaped mat, stamping the bull rushes twice so that faded ones are in the background. I coloured lightly with copics. The sentiment is Anita's. This was then mounted on to a dark brown card blank.

This is for:
