It's strange how we sometimes don't like our own work but everyone else disagrees - and I'm afraid I have to disagree with you on this one Coops! It's gorgeous! I love the image you coloured - is it the same one from your tutorial (which is brill, by the way)? I love the gold glitter touches and the papers too x
