Delights is the name of the Penny Black stamp I'm using today, and it was a delightful find when I unearthed it from under clutter mountain on my desk!

I think this is the first time I've used this stamp which is a poor show cause it's so sweet!  I've combined it with really old K & Co papers, which we all had back in my Docrafts days!

The card follows the current sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday - and it made me realise I'm really not a side ways oval girl, by that I mean most of my stamps fit an upright oval - hence the stamp search!

Anyway I really like this sketch and will use it again most certainly!
