Happy Birthday @ Fantasy Stampers

Good morning everyone.
Did you realize it is a whole year since the first challenge started over at Fantasy Stampers, so to celebrate the fact Jan has chosen the appropriate topic of 


This is my contribution to the DT's inspiration. It uses a new set of stamps that I got from the STAMPlorations stamp club just before Christmas( Something New). It's called Boxed Blooms. You may ask why boxed, well the flowers are surrounded by a frame on the actual stamp but for this purpose I fancied using it a little differently.
I stamped the rose from the set then coloured using DI then fussy cut them to remove the frame.
I made the background by washing a layer of green DI then stamping a leaf from my Hero Arts Stitched frame set in the darker green. I added a touch of the pink then layered the roses on top.
The sentiment was die cut from black card using a Spellbinders die (something old) and glued in place.

So why not pop over to the main blog and check out the rest of the DTs inspiration and join in.
Please remember that we will not include digi stamps in out top3, so to avoid disappointment keep it to traditional stamping!

I shall enter the following challenges-
