A card just because

I've been having a little play with one of my Stamps Happen Craft stamps from Janlynn.

This is very different from my normal style but I think it's nice to try something different now and again. The stamp I have used this time is called Chick Rules for obvious reasons. The black/grey paper is Basic Grey Black Tie and the red is Cosmo Cricket. Ribbon, feather charm , spacer and gem are all from my stash and the flower is froma digital set but I forgot to write done where I got it from...duh. I have never used digital embelishments on my cards so this is a first for me. I couldn't find a black or red flower so went looking through my digi stuff and found this. I wasn't sure about it and thought it would look really "fake" but I don't think it is that bad. What do you think?
I wanted to alter a clipboard and use this stamp on it but I don't have a clipboard lol. I saw on a blog or website (can't remember where now) someone had altered a clipboard and used it in their kitchen as an organiser kind of thing, and I thought this stamp would be great for that. It just reminds me of an old country kitchen, but maybe thats just me lol.
Well that's me for tonight, and I will be back in the morning for the Digiatl Tuesday Challenge. It's my turn to host the challenge this week and set the challenge. Stop by tomorrow to find out what my challenge is ;)

Very cute, I've never thought about using a digi flower when I don't have the right color-very cool, thanks!
