Okay I Succumbed!!!

WElcome to my new follower Kren--I have a confession ---I succumbed---to the gorgeous single rose stamp from Honey Doo Crafts ---BUT in my defence I don't have a "single" fower stamp and this is absolutely gorgeous stamps perfectly and has shading already on the flower too.

Sooo this is a blip on using neglected stash and I made a quick CAS card.
I coloured the stamp with promarkers I die-cut a frame and the wooden love(coloured with promarkers) from stash.
