  8. Great minds think alike since this image did jump into my mind when I saw the photo but I didn't go for it in the end as you know. This looks so gorgeous with all the pretty lace and sparkle, and those super gorgeous vintage papers. The criss cross design is fab...mine never open like yours does because I glue it all down - lol!
    Big hugs, Kat xx

  9. Hi Christine, I love this card. The image is so simple (in a good way)! and so pretty. Your colouring and colour scheme totally do it justice. The criss cross design looks wonderful with that gorgeous lace. *sigh* - you make such exquisite cards and have a fabulous eye for detail.


If you like what you see and have a moment, please say hello.. it means a lot to me..
