Oooh, lovely color combo with the beautiful papers! The organza ribbon makes it so soft and elegant - perfect for the reason - kissing! ;-) Do you ink distress your designer papers? I'll have to try that - it gives it a softer look, doesn't it? I really love your coloring - shadows perfect and the outline of the images perfect. The fluffy stuff on her hat is really cute - love the flowers; always a perfect mix, Donna! you're so awesome! You've got rain and we've got hideous heat! *sigh*
