This is so pretty. I adore that LF paper--and, I'm thinking you got this in before the deadline?

I'm loving this card, Tracey! I love how you stamped the sentiment on that bright patterned paper. I would never think to do it, and yet it works so well. Something else to add to my bag of tricks. ;-)

Tracey, this is amazing! That butterfly is so beautiful against that green...what I really love about your card is how it looks like it is floating on the white background, so clever and fun. Love it!

OK, this would put a little more "Spring" in my step! Love the extra-wide borders you gave it, Tracey. Perfect with all those flowers!

I love all the pretty flowers here - and of course that fancy lavender butterfly - brilliant that it matches the twine!
