With a theme like 'Floral Frenzy' it was great to start
thinking spring!
I loved working with these colors and all of elements
that went along with the great designs from DeNami.


Now, I am sure you can see where I used the
sentiment stamp, but you may have to look
a little closely to find the 'decorative crest' image.


Yep...there it is stamped on the petals
of the green flowers!

I hope you enjoyed your visit to
The Open Window
