The sentiment and background are from Create with TLC
and I merged it with the image in Photoshop CS3.  The image has also been coloured in Photoshop CS3.  The flower embellishment has been created with flower punches and the buttons and design papers are from my stash. The button crochet flowers have been created for me by my dear SIL, Louise.
