From the Archives
New ideas from the Spring/Summer Idea Book feature some favorite stamp 
designs from years past.This individual stamp was one of my first stamps 
15 years way back. In those days I didn't know about paper piecing, 
so today it was fun to just use the frame only on this card. 

Card colors, Hollyhock & Indian Corn Blue, are inspired by the 
Color My Heart challenge this week.
Card design is inspired by this sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.
