I've used the bouquet for the background, masking and adding leaves as I went round, then stamped the single rose, added the leaves, coloured and fussy cut.  The sentiment comes from Sentiment Builders: Happy.


Wanna see where on earth I got my inspiration from for this set (and that funny-shaped vase)?  


I'm absolutely blown away by the fabulous cards my teamies have produced using my designs - if you haven't already visited their sites, go take a look!
