I liked how this turned out, I merged two stamps from Make it Crafty to create the above scene using Paint Net.  The sentiment is from FDC and is one of my favourite Happy Birthday stamps, so elegant!    I have been loving how Sandra "Rose Petal' does her marvellous embellishment using the 'Foliage' die cuts and this one is my rendition of hers. Thanks Sandra...
