A Happy Accident

What to do for this morning's new challenge ? I had a think and then another and then remembered that I needed a card for my Uncle who is having an operation later this week. Being a very rural sort of bloke I thought a certain stamp of mine would fit the bill, and even better I had it all stamped up and coloured. It was abandoned several weeks ago during the 'Something with Legs' challenge, and although it got lobbed across the room in disgust because the card just wasn't coming together, I did have the foresight to save it. I'm glad I did now as this is what I have created with it for Less is More's challenge, Things that Move and it also qualifies for Casual Friday's latest challenge - embossing.

The image is by Crafty Individuals and was stamped with Versafine, clear embossed and coloured with soft pencils, I added some twine and attached a dangling greeting by Hero Arts.
Must shake a leg now as on the late shift today, thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments. I do enjoy reading them all.
