Chocolate Baroque "Green Harlequin"

Hello to you all, We have some fabulous new stamps that have just been released for July over at Chocolate Baroque.  I am sharing a card today made using one of  the stamps from the 
I have started by inking some white card with Antique Linen Distress Ink then using Evergreen Bough stamped my background. I inked the edges with some more Evergreen Bough and then edged with Black Soot.
I die-cut a small piece of green card and stamped the flower silhouette from the July Fairy stamp sheet twice without re-inking the stamp. Finally I stamped the sentiment  and mounted it onto foam pads.
