Your card is adorable Sweetie ! I love the papers - colours are fab ! - and the embossed pannel looks fantastic ! Lots of hugs and love from Catherine

Yummy card - love those fruity colors! The embossed background is great - is it two papers or did you ink it? Really awesome! The image is cooler than cool - colored in a grand way and love the circular sentiment; great font! Super fun papers Donna; love how you create. You put just enough elements together and allow the beautiful papers to show and a great image - nothing overcrowded. Sometimes I want to add too much - yours is always perfect.
