I bought this stamp in 1999 I think. I usually stamp it in brown tones. I stamped this one and didn't get a good image in the upper left-hand corner, so I tore it and the other edges, antiqued and color sponged the flowers. I gold embossed the edges. I tore some quilted brown packing paper, antiqued the paper, antiqued some light tan cardstock. I glued the stamped image paper on top of the packing paper, which is attached to the note card. My daughter-in-law had a small stamp "Letters are written...." I will have to read the actual card since the stamp is no longer in her possession. There's a certain feeling about this stamp. I love it.
