Welcome to Day One of Mark's Finest Paper Blog hop.  Today we are showcasing the columns and topiary stamps.   On this card I colored my image with Copic Markers and did a little sponging around the edge of the image.  This set could be used for many occasions, birthday, sympathy, get well, wedding, etc..  Be sure to hop a long with us today so you can get your name in the drawing to win one of the new sets.
