LOVE your card, Tracey. It's so simple and beautiful and perfect. The DP's are awesome, and I love the simple layout that lets that gorgeous flower just shine right out front. This is a perfect Mother's Day card. And thanks for the reminder to get going on mine! It does sneak up, doesn't it. Awesome card, girl. ;-)
