Good Morning Mrs A, what a lovely card you've made there!

Lovely colour combo and that topper is just sooo pretty!

Great butterfly die as well - I've got a few butterfly dies and never know where to put them on the card, so they are languishing in the back of the dies drawer!

Such a very elegant use of the yellows, creams & gray colorways. This is a beautiful topper, and your 3d creamy yellow roses were a perfect compliment to the image. This card just is so regal & rich in color & composition. Love it! TFS & Hugs

Gorgeous card Mrs A, fabulous image and flower display.
Spring doesn't really seem to have arrived here as it has been bitter cold these past few days.

Great card, Mrs A. Your butterflies and handmade flowers are wonderful.

Yellow is such a great colour to inspire us to create for Spring! My daffodils are not anywhere near bloomingl They are still green sticks about 6 inches high now...but nowhere near blooming.
Off to catch up...
It has been a hellish couple of weeks and I am so far behind!
