Golden Brown....

Anytime I hear the words golden brown I think of something delicious. I think that might have been part of my inspiration for this card. (All that good thanksgiving cooking.) Daria sent me this Hero Arts Antique Map Background stamp which I love! (Thank you Daria!) She did this as a lovely surprise for me... knowing that I had admired it. What a wonderful gift to find in the mailbox yesterday along with a lovely card.

I thought I was going to make a masculine card but the butterfly showed up and some flowers. :)
