Well I think it is a fab card, love the brown and pink combo, but I know what you mean, once you don't like something, nothing can change your mind. I've just done a card for a guest DT in July but don't like it, my son and daughter say it is good but I don't care I'm doing another lol. Take Care Debs xx

I don't know what you don't like Coops - I think it is so nice.

You have coloured that gorgeous image perfectly. Great choice of colours and very intricate cutting out too .. .. such patience!

I hope your new stamps arrive in time for the weekend. I love waiting for new stamps but it doesn't take long before they become "un-new" and I starting thinking about the next ones I would like to own. LOL!!

Have a great weekend and enjoy the football.

Love Jules xx
