Papertrey Ink: Build a Bouquet Challenge

This is my fourth project for the 8th Anniversary Celebrations at Papertrey Ink.  Betsy Veldman has created some sweet floral bouquets for the February release.

Day 4 Challenge: 
For this challenge we were to use several stamp sets to create a floral bouquet. My desk was littered with five or six sets, as I was testing out various combinations. I finally decided to create a bouquet with Turning a New Leaf, Happiness in Bloom, Birds & Blooms, Mini Blooms and Daydreamer. My flowers were grouped together in the jar from Friendship Jar.
