I've been having some more fun with the new Winter Release for Manor House Creations

I really went layering mad on this one :-))) - using the gorgeous MHC flowers, Whimsy – Pink, Imagine – Blueberry, Lemon Petite Roses and Sublime – Baby Blue.

 Other items include - Crafty Secret Images; Karen Frances Pink Crepe Paper; Martha Stewart Doily Die Cut; Little Yellow Bicycle Stick Pins and Fancy That Die Cut - French Flourish 1.

See the sweet purply/grey swirled background piece - that's the gorgeous backing you get with the MHC flowers - you will love putting it to good use on your projects :-)
