Hi Helen,

I love this card, the border really sets the card off and the flowers are really pretty. Thanks so much for sharing the tutorial as well, extremely clever and the roses have turned out beautifully. I have those two punches so will have to give it a try.

Thanks so much for entering your card at Anything goes, Just keep on creating. I hope you will continue to share your lovely work.

Hey Helen,

The indigo blue colour is really royal..I also love the detailed border on the 1st box...The yellow flowers bring out the contrast..

Good Going...

Hey Helen,

The indigo blue colour is really royal..the detailed carved border on the 1st box is awesome and the yellow flowers bring the needed contrast to break the monotony of blue...


-May ART be with you.
