  3. This is so pretty! The image is lovely and the flowers look fabulous.

  4. Beautiful card Karen! I love the lovely colour combination and the subtle colour of the embossing of the birdcage. Gorgeous embellies and a great idea to use gauze instead of cheesecloth, so much cheaper and just as effective. Hope you all have a good week. Debra x
