Sorry I'm so late commenting on this one, Kathy! I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love how you manage to combine and overlay stamps together, such a great skill to have. Love the way you've used the challenge colours and the grey frame adds real style.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
