Then, I made "Jungle."  The theme for this was was earthy colors & leaves.  I originally meant for this to be a background for something else, but I loved the way it looked (especially the weird looking bud).  Here's a peek at both the front and the back (my information is on the back):

Those look awesome!  What kind of ink did you use to create the Fluer de lis (sp?) image?

Thanks Eraserqueen -- it's a really, really old pigment dye pad I have.  It's so old that it doesn't stay wet when I stamp it.  It dries almost immediately.
