good friends..(wed stamper flowers challenge)


Thought I would have a play with some of my collage sheets and stamps today. One of my favourite flowers is the poppy so have used this lovely stamp from Scrollswork as the main image. My son has gone to school camp this week and this little boys face reminded me of the apprehension that was on all their faces as they boarded the coach! I have stamped the background with some numbers and I just love the Mark Twain stamped quote. I found some vintage lace at a market and as the flower is stamped on to french text I have added an eiffel tower. All stamps used are from Scrollswork and the shop now sells gift certificates.
