Garden Bouquet

I've been playing with some more of the goodies I got for my birthday...'Garden Bouquet' stamp by Hero Arts and 'Blooming Season' embossing folder by Craft Concepts. I stamped the image using the watercolour technique and Distress Inks, then cut it out using some of my Nesties. I added a scalloped border along the edge of the embossed panel using my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch, a couple of Penny Black sentiments and some adhesive pearls.
