Recipe Challenge

Happy Bank Holiday weekend! And so far a lovely sunny one!

Time for another Stamp With Us challenge, and this week it's a recipe challenge - to use the following on a card:

-1 Flower
-1 Patterned Paper
-2 Ribbons
-1 Button

And here's what I came up with:


I still adore this set - it makes the most fabulous Roses, buds and leaves. It's lovely using it at the moment as the roses in the garden are just coming into bud, such a lovely time of year - everything so lush and green and coming into flower, a real hint that summer is (well should be!) just around the corner!

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful loooong weekend!
