This week I am featuring Birch Press Celebrate Sugar Script Die which I have die cut with Simon's Woodgrain Card Stock. The pretty flowers stamp is Simon Says Stamps Center Cut Flowers Background Stamp which I have stamped with Versamark Watermark emboss ink heat embossed it using white embossing powder & then coloured with my copics.

For the small flecks of colour on my white background I have used some ink from my RV93 copic refill so that I could match it perfectly with the colours of my flowers.

The stamped part of my sentiment is from one of Simon's stamp sets but typically I can't remember which one! I had a big stack of Simon's stamps on my desk and was flicking through them until I found what I wanted so I need to search through my stamp sets and check which packet it was from.

The copic colours I've used are -
G94, G43, G40 / RV95, RV93, RV91 / Y19, Y15.

 Other supplies used -
