Damask Hello

I just LOVE how easy it is to tile these stamps to create GORGEOUS backgrounds! They are SO pretty! The luscious ribbon is from May Arts and the sentiment is actually an SRM sticker! I love them!!! the door knocker is an old embellishment from EK Success I had around! YAY!

Damask Hello (detial)
