Ok, wherever you found this dp, I am loving it. The colors are so gorgeous together. I've always loved pink and brown, but the little touches of yellow thrown in there are perfect.

You got the Turning a New Leaf stamp set! You're going to LOVE it! I love stamping those little leafy branches in the backgrounds of all sorts of things. And they always look great. I can't wait to see all of the ways you use it! I just might have to steal some inspiration! :)
