A Stamping Day

Spent some time stamping today. Oh, how relaxing that is!
When I worked on this floral piece last Saturday, I was not happy with it so I set it aside. It seemed to have improved while sitting on my stamping desk. Today I added a few more leaves and the "happy birthday" sentiment. Now it's ready to be mailed!
