This is so gorgeous Norma. Love the beautiful papers & how perfectly you color your Tildas to make them appear almost lifelike. Your computer generated sentiments are always wonderful & so fitting for each creation. Love that.
I'm wondering how you got such a thin mat around your Spellbinders dies that you used. It looks great. I'm always impressed that the insides of your cards are as lovely & finished as the outside,
hugs, Janie
