Vintage Celebrations

I'd received a few stamp, emboss & die sets from Couture Creations in the post which I'd yet to have time to play with. Today I got the chance to play & this is what I put together. It was very easy & quick as the stamps, embossing folder & dies all matched. The stamp set consisted of one large stamp (incorporating the frame & script), x2 sentiments & x3 butterflies. It also had a coordinating embossing folder for the frame and x3 butterfly dies. A very useful set!
