  1. Absolutely stunning card Sue! I love the colours you have used. The flowers are gorgeous.

  2. Fabulous card, Susan! I absolutely love the softness and femininity of it. That trellis punch is fantastic. I saw another card made with it and can not seem to find this punch anywhere. And that awesome branch punch- I have looked for that one for AGES! (I've since given up!). I don't know where you shop, but you sure do manage to find some wonderful accessories to help you create your beautiful cards. This one is perfectly lovely!

  3. Wow!!! Your card is stunning!!! I so agree, the softness and femininity is beautiful. I love your velumn flowers and can't wait to make some, hopefully soon. *smile* Thanks so much for playing at the PPA!!! Hugs,

  4. This is a stunning card. I really LOVE it - so pretty.
