Chocolate Baroque challenge 30

Happy new year to you.
Hope you had a good Christmas.
Well , I am starting off well with my crafting, which I have been unable to do for the last three weeks.  I managed to damage my right arm somehow, and have been unable to lift it or use it without pain.
 Not fun.
Several  physio sessions later, involving even more pain,  and I can at least use it again.
So back to the crafting.
 Chocolate Baroque's new challenge though, has inspired me to get on with something.
Current Challenge
So here is my first challenge contribution for 2017, and it was so lovely to actually be able to do something again.

 Note that crafting was first on the agenda of things to do. when capable, housework being way down the list!! Got to get my priorities right.

I was lucky enough to win one of the challenges last year  and bought this set of stamps as I like the Art Nouveau style.

I actually only really liked one of the stamps in the set, but once I started 'playing' with them, I realized that I have a couple of embossing folders and a stencil, which compliment the Art Nouveau style very well. I have used a Dreamweaver stencil as the background on my card.

May even get around to doing a second project this time, before other things take over.
                                                                Thanks for visiting.
                                                                      Bye for now.
