The green paper I have used across the middle of my page is 
 also from the same collection.

All my flowers are from the various 49and Market flower collections too.

 Hello there, thanks for stopping by the blog. Today I have another layout to share
 with you & I have used some of the NEW papers from 49and Market  just released

There are three different sets in total & I do love them all.
