I think you've done a great job with this card. I especially love the way you've put the bit of pink card in there - it really lifts the whole card and frames the image - such a nice touch. Did you know the Magnolia Down Under are holding a DT call at the minute? I definitely think you should put your hat in the ring!! Marie x
