Hello Petra.. first I want to thank you for all your wonderful comments. I know it seems like I'm absent I had just enough time to post but not comment. Now it is all about you.. your talent for giving space to breathe is outstanding. The butterflies are so well done and the simple twine breaking up the card is absolutely perfect.. I am "camping" right now and I happen to be blind in one eye so it I'd hard to see specifics.. but what I can clearly see is your creative genius. Love this carf

Jen Brum said...

Just gorgeous. Love your top panel, which has such a collagey look to it, and yet is not busy at all. Your flower and bow are so very sweet together and I like the scattering of dots drawing my eye over to the bottom of the card.

Petra, it always seems like every single element on your cards are perfectly placed to achieve an amazing design flow for your eye. This is a prime example of that... Lovely!
