Damask 1

Was just playing around with new Papertrey sets today. didn't really mean to make anything, was just stamping on paper... and the new EK success edge punch was first, then the stamp inked up tons went down, and a black strip fit under the punched edge beautifully. I grabbed for ribbon and said- no, wait... be done!

I can see that a sentiment would fit nicely on the right just above the punched edge, so I think I will pop it into my card box just like it is!
