Petra I cannot thank you enough for such lovely comments.. I am so grateful for all your wonderful words.. And now it's my turn! Look at this fantastic card.. Your sponging technique is so skillfully done Petra!! You would think it is airbrushed.. Is it? You masked this!!! It looks like it is popping off the card!! wow!!! I also love the setting for the pic.. So fitting and so gorgeous.. I see you have been practicing with your camera.. WOW!! Me, broken record loves your black accents.. this is a winner in my book Petra...

Ha Petra,
deze kaart is ook weer heel mooi! Prachtig hoe je die hoek van achter de bloem van donker naar licht laat komen. Schitterend gedaan!
Lieve groetjes,

I'm so in awe of your sponging, Petra! Using the die cut for a mask has given such a wonderful 'glow' around your lovely bloom - LOve the tumbling sentiments, too!! Thanks for joining us at CTS! xx
