Oh boy Donna - your colors are screaming BEAUTIFUL! The distressed edges are adorably perfect - soft and get the attention they deserve. I love the polka dot ribbon and how you incorporate that with your borders. Do you know how screaming CUTE this card is? I love gingerbread houses and this one is lovely - I'll have to go there and get this kit! The gingham paper is perfect and so is that sentiment - you're such a talented lady. I know when people get your cards, they feel the love that was created with it. You're just so awesome, Donna! (I'm envious, by the way! :-))
