Pretty Proteas

I was so excited when I saw that Hero Arts came out with a Protea flower stamp set.  Since it's indigenous to South Africa, I didn't think any US stamp companies would ever create one. It was the first of my new Hero Arts order that inked up!

I was also inspired by the layers of Eva's card.  Instead of actual stitches on the top layer, I decided to use one of my stitch dies. I coloured with Prismacolor pencils.
