Today I would like to share a card made using one of the new stamps from Crafty Individuals and one of the images from their miniature images book People and Places 2.

I don’t usually say this kind of thing but….These books have 158 assorted sized images on 6″ square sheets.

They are miniature images.
I have used them Here and Here recently.
