Take Time to Enjoy

I was organizing some of my stamps the other day and came across this Hero Arts sentiment.  How many of us have said at one time or another we need to enjoy the simple things in life?  I know I need to slow down and start enjoying!

Anyway, the sentiment was stamped in VersaMark with copper embossing powder.  I really love the copper on black.  The flower I created by inking up the petals with Pumpkin Pie then used a sponge dauber to apply Bravo Burgundy.  The stem and leaves were done with an Always Artichoke Marker.
