I really liked both your cards, especially the one with the rose - the background just suites it perfectly! Love it!

Both knockouts as usual Petra! I love the way the stripes get thinner as you look down the card and that flower is so realistic looking. the colours and arrangement in the second card is also stunning, those flags, the vellum and the butterfly!! I'm really envious of the scene you get greeted with every day when you look out of your window . . . I can only imagine how wonderful that must feel! Have a lovely day! Hazel xx
