  1. WOW - this is really beautiful! What a decorative curvy border, and the paper with script goes so nicely with the elegant flower image. Lovely!

  2. Romanic take on the picture. Love it.

  3. This is absolutely breathtaking, Donna! LOVE the gorgeous shapes and textures--and the poppies are just wonderful! HUGS and hope you have a great Friday! :)

  4. Beautiful inspired card, Donna! I really like how you captured the essence of this elegant setting from the photo! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog with your wonderful well-wishes!

  5. Beautiful Donna! A wonderful interpretation of the photo and such an elegant design! I love how you've used the curvy border dies - I have just bought these recently, thanks so much for the inspiration! : ) Ruth x

  6. Hi Donna, I came across this card on Pinterest and thought it looked very's a great case of my original card and however well I liked my card I must say the curve wasn't the easiest to achieve so I LOVE the way you created with the straight edge curved die.

    I volunteer to help seniors make cards each week and I just might be casing your idea as a much easier way to cut that curve. Thanks so much for sharing so I could learn something new! Happy Stamping!


Thank you so much for your comments. I read and enjoy all of them.
