Getting Sentimental

A few years ago a friend called and asked if I wanted to come over and go through some stamps.  Her mother passed away and was a stamper - she had several boxes of stamps.  I was honored to be asked to receive some of these loved treasures and continue her cause of blessing others through this hobby we love.  One of those stamps I used for this card.

 
Continuing in my quest to use what I have, I dug into my box of scraps and found the papers used here.  The flowers are colored with pencils because I wanted to keep that soft feel.
 
I'm submitting this card into the following challenges:
Thank you for stopping by today!  Why not bless someone today with a card?
