Anne is making a new beginning in her new home, but packing cases still surround her and she may not get a card posted for this challenge... also her camera cable is yet to be located! However she has internet coverage and hopes to be back visiting you and commenting again this week.

Paper Smooches: Botanical Stamp set
Uniko Studio: All Occasion Sentiments #1 (NBUS)
Twine & gems from my stash
I wanted my little scene to appear as if the recipient was

Paper Smooches: Metropolitan Stamp Set
Clearly Besotted: Say it In Style Sentiment stamps
Derwent Coloursoft pencils and glossy accents
The stamps here are from Stampin' Up. The tiny hearts from the Confetti set and the sentiment from Love and Laughter.
The frame was embossed with Sizzix dies and the 'minimal embellishments'... the tiny birds, cut from a Memory Box die.
Here are stamps from Clearly Besotted, surrounded by a Simon Says Stamp embossed frame.
