Oh my Goodness - I am in love with this stamp! From the one sample that was displayed with the image, I assumed this was a VERY tiny background stamp - and that's what I originally ordered it for . . . . The truth is, it's a good sized stamp and made a phenomenal focal image on my card - I do believe that is how I will most often use it! I wish there was a way to attached a photo of my card so others could get a better perspective of this stamp. . .
