I simple adore this paper by Simple Stories.  Went to my LSS and stocked up on a few pieces of each so I can enjoy it for a long time.  Such a delicious colour combination that is elegant and packs a lot of punch - love it!  I am also in love with this fabulous flower image from Happy Place and so happy it has a matching die set!  I was definitely smiling while making this card.
