Not as easy as its sounds with so many gorgeous stamps available but I've gone with Rosy Posy, one of my old favourites. 
For the first time I've tried colouring on kraft. I'm sure theres room for improvement and boy do I love the white pencil. On this occassion I used my Faber Castell Polychromo's. The papers are a very old pad, K & Co Addison. A bit of distressing and lots of embellishments and punches.
