Hi everyone,

I have a card to share with you today that I have creating using some new papers from 


These papers are from the  Romance and Roses Collection, love the soft colour palette,
 I also used a new sentiment.


My image is from a Coloured Artpad, called Wildflowers.  
I added some Glamour dust to make it sparkle.

I have been a bit quiet on my blog lately, going through some major and much needed 
renovations in my Office/Scraproom, I will post photos once done.
 Right now I cannot find anything as I have stuff everywhere.
