Beautiful card! I definitely like using more white as you did...it really makes the other colors pop. How did you make the edged circle around the greeting? Did you punch it twice with the scalloped circle, and shift it the 2nd time? What a great idea!

Wow Ange, that is fabulous! I particularly love the background - you made your own DSP, it looks fantastic! Like how you used the scallop punch too. I've still not gotten around to using it that way myself.

Your work is amazing - love your clean style, such professional designs. Thanks for posting such a kind comment on my blog too. If you're going to Convention, I'd love to swap with you!
