Break For Cake lost and found

I love Penny Black stamps especially the big wood ones, they are not cheap,quality never is , but I thought this lovely stamp was a good buy at £9.39...until 2 days after purchase I lost it!!!! now I do have a lot of stamps but I remember all of them and usually where about in my craft room they are....but this one was gone, I searched,tidying along the way ,no luck , I thought I must have thrown it away by mistake, this morning I had a brain wave...that's rare, looked in a rarely used draw and there it what did I do ...well what any sensible crafter would do...stamped it up and made a card!

Stamps : penny black , break for cake ' sentiment ,do craft black and gold collection
papers: Bo Bunny and the paws strip , DCWV the pet stack
gingham ribbon, I always have plenty of gingham in various colours, it's a must have for me.
The flower corsage was made using white paper,edges inked,a flower punch ,layered and shaped and glued onto silk leaves
Challenges entered:

Beautiful card Jane,the image is lovely and I love the paw prints along the bottom....Been there done that with crafty bits and pieces,can't find them,search for them then accuse everyone in the house of having it,throwing it out etc,only to find it and then having to poor hubby still can't understand why I would think he would need my pokery tool,or that new paper pad or stamp,well I wouldn't lose things would
Have a lovely weekend...
