Scrapbook Boutique Challenge

I love the stamp I have used on this card. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about it. I purchased it in a "Grab Bag" of assorted stamps online somewhere. As soon as I saw the theme for the challenge this month on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog I knew she was just perfect.
The background stamp is from Hero Arts and the flower and flourish were cut using the Silhouette Cameo.
When I thought I had finished it didn't look quite right (too much white space) so rather than pulling it all apart to redo I thought I would try splattering a bit of red ink over the excess white areas to soften the look. It was a nerve racking experience at the time (grin) but I think it turned out ok.
This is the photo we had as inspiration.
