So pleased to see you back Petra my dear friend! And with more fabulous creations!! I love the diagonal design of the black gems in the top card and the washi tape behind the 4U. A great take on that sketch. Also a terrific take on that second sketch and so wonderfully clean and fresh with those lovely soft colours and that pretty vellum flower!! Love everything about them and so very pleased to have you back on the scene my dear friend!! Have a great week! Hazel xx

HIP HIP HORRAY and YAY....you're back! And back with a bang dear friend! Stunning contrast between your two card - bright, bold & brilliant design and awesome contrasting colors on your first card. Then soft, serene elegance on your second card. The velum and the wee peak of stencilled doily rocket this card into the Winner's Circle!

Sooooo nice to see your creations once again :)

#1 is just wonderful, with the color scheme against that crisp white. I do love the way you've been using these graphic frames to add such interest to your cards. Your designs are always so fresh & colorful. Also loved #2 with the CAS & white. Very soothing & calm. I keep trying to incorporate your idea of these open frames and one of these days I'm going to succeed. You do it so well! TFS & Hugs

Two fun cards! Love the orange dp, and the angles on the strips. Really shows motion. The open circles are a great touch too. And your second card is a study in CAS beauty. Soft colors, delicate papers, and lots of white space make this just gorgeous. Love it! Bev

Groete en lekker dag,
