Just beautiful! I love this colour combo, great job!

Karen said...

Love all the black and white Shannon! The arch lattice border works fantastic with the card sketch! Beautiful work!

Mrs J said...

Shannon, this is a gorgeous, elegant creation! I love the colour combo and the stamped tropical flowers are just beautiful! The border looks so effective too - I've got to get my hands on some Martha Stewart border punches, it's just they cost a fortune by the time they make it over here to the UK!
Hugs Mrs Jx

Take care of your finger Shannon! Your sample card is beeeeautiful! I saw the sketch this morning and was so intimidated by it. I love your style, this card came out absolutely gorgeous, thank goodness you are part of the CB DT and can't enter. LOL! ;)
