Allsorts Week 294 - Spring Flowers


This week Susan is hosting us with the theme "Spring Flowers"

I've used a topper sheet and embellishment sheet from Katy Sue Designs which was one of those, that looks pretty in the sale pile purchases at the NEC, have to say they are designed flower soft but look quite nice without!

Our sponsors:
