Holding out for a Hero (art stamp)

Last week I went to a new to me craft shop the other side of Swindon called Snazzystamps, they run 3 drop in sessions on a Thursday where you just turn up, pay a small fee and are let loose on a HUGE number of stamps that they use for workshops as well as inks, dies, papers, everything you could ever need.    I wasted a lot of time in kid-in-a-sweetshop mode, looking at all the goodies available.  But eventually I settled down and made a couple of simple cards including the one that uses a lovely Hero Arts stamp.  I've inked wth Distress Ink, spritzed with water and stamped, using the same inks on the card background.  Not sure whose stamp the sentiment is.  I had a lovely time, Val who runs the shop was very welcoming and I plan to go again when I can.
My card is for the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - no designer paper
Craft Us Crazy - anything goes August
Card Making Mamas - birthday cards
Sentimental Sundays - flowers and sentiment
