I just love Shruti's work a lot especially the way she uses her colors and her stamped and fussy-cut flowers look just awesome!...I have taken inspiration from the flowers and her color scheme and put my  own twist on it!...Hope its half as beautiful as Shruti's though!..I have made my flowers from the MFT die and colored it using distress inks.
