Simple sketch

It's been a wet bank holiday, no surprise but what a shame for everyone organising events. I've been very productive inside including cleaning things long overdue, decorating :( and of course a bit of stamping as a reward for being virtuous.
I never know what my favourite flower is, it changes every month, and it is the same with stamps. Today this is my favourite. The image is so clear and stamps perfectly every time. It is new as well, so that helps.
I stamped this green panel first:
and then decided I'd like to try it in Autumn colours. I don't really want to think of Autumn any more than I want to think of Christmas but the colours are lovely. 
I've made this for my Dad who has just had a knee operation. I tried it on a white card background but the contrast was too stark.
The top card is mounted on a piece of scrap card I had so that is why it looks a bit tight on the page. My mission is to use up all my bits. I'm thinking lots of tiny thank you cards and gift tags. 
The leaf stamp is from a Card-io foliage set and I just happened to buy a couple of her teeny tiny stamp sets too. So I think I'll put the Inky Doodles away (briefly) and have a go with these.
The sentiments are both Hobby Art.
The card design is a sketch from this weeks Less is More challenge.
