You always do such a super job of coloring. The elegant floral images really pop against the gray. The sunflower from Stately 5 is one of my favorite images to color. You have done an amazing job. Love the background paper. The gold Labels 4 really adds a touch of elegance to both cards. Thanks for your wonderful inspiration.

Two such different cards! love the "softness" of the first, and that beautiful lacy frame to set off the focal image. I love sunflowers, so the second one just jumped out at me. The flower looks so realistic.

You are one talented designer! Those Spellbinder dies gave your cards the grandeur they were meant to be. Awesome! BTW, I thought your header was a cat at first, but thought, no, it looks more like a fox. It is!!

Your cards reflect the talents of a person who does amazing work! I love both of your cards--the coloring is magnificent, and the Spellbinder dies created the elegance the cards were meant to be. I've tagged your cards for further study.

These cards are so pretty. The label you chose to use on the first card really sets it off. I love the lacey look around the label. You really did a good job with the copics. I need to practice with those. Your sunflower card really is pretty. Thanks
