Heartfelt- Carnations Debut

Good morning!

Oh my goodness a new flower, what could be better?  
This new carnation will be an instant classic in my book!
Today I have used it with the new foam paper, what fun it was to heat and shape these little blooms!!
This paper collection is amazing too, it reminds me of the famous Butchart Gardens in Victoria.
