  1. LOVE this Susan! Your pine swag across the window is so pretty and the scene of the birds in the cute!

  2. This is stunning Susan, love the accents on the window and the sweet birds outside!

  3. I just said "Ahhhhh" without even realizing just came out of my mouth when I saw your card. What a beauty. I always forget about what a pretty color River Rock can be, and your little window is exquisite. It makes me want to run right out and get those dies! Thanks for playing with the Merry Monday challenge this week and sharing your creation with us!

  7. Stunning! I've just been playing with River Rock myself; love it (but often forget about it). I love the dark brown accents against the River Rock; such a beautiful card, Sue.

  8. Susan your card is jaw droppingly beautiful! It's always a delight to visit your blog and gaze upon your creative genius. Cheers Donna Zammit :)

  9. Susan you have created the most beautiful scene! It looks stunning in this soft color. Something I would not have thought of on my own. Love all the details on this stunning card!
