Lili of the Valley Theme Thursday Winner Prize Stamp

Good morning everyone today I am posting a card  I have made with the stamp I won in the Lili of the Valley Theme Thursday draw. Its called Cake Glorious Cake and  I think its a lovely image. I decided on the two colour scheme and  the pale colours and am pleased with the results. This is the first time I've used the Memory Box bow and star die and think this will feature on more cards in the future. Its also the first time I've used Gesso.
