  1. Nancy, beautifully made, I love how you put the directions together. Makes me think I could make this one.
    I do find it interesting you color choices. I Love it... A loved one going to Heaven is time to celebrate, like spring time is a time to celebrate... Thank you for your card, it is lovely.

  2. Elegant with just enough bling elements to not make it overpowering for this type of card.
