A Non-Inked Stamp or a New Decoupage

Hi everyone,  For this week, at Make My Monday, it is my time to choose the topic. I would like you to use a stamp you have, which has never seen ink or had any application of any kind. It may or may  not be a NEW stamp, how many of us, some time ago,  have bought a stamp and are still to use it?  This is THE time. Or if your not a stamper, whether from a CD or a purchased sheet of decoupage, now is the time to use it, in a project.
Challenge then is A Non-Inked Stamp or A New sheet of Decoupage. Hope you have fun everyone.
For my card, I firstly had some difficulty in deciding which of my unused stamps to add ink to for the first time, I decided upon the one with the pretty young girl from Crafty Individuals CI 110. I have had her for a few months now, so am glad to find a suitable project  After choosing the stamp, I then looked through my stash of papers, finally choosing a a booklet of Botanical papers from Prima, which was free with a magazine. I edged all of the edges with Stormy Sky, also using Old Paper and Iced Spruce (my latest TH purchase).The embellishments added are flowers from a die cut, lace, pearls and metal corners. I photographed it resting on a plant which grows within the cracks of an old stone wall next to my house, the first person who adds on  my comments,  the name of the plant,  which is obviously a weed, but such a pretty weed,  providing me with some visual evidence, for me to confirm, I will send them this card , sorry only available to those in the UK. (It's just a bit of fun). I hope you enjoy the challenge I have chosen.
P.S THE CARD HAS BEEN CLAIMED by Acquarius  - the flower is called Ivy-Leafed Toadflax.
