Hi Nic I am sure that I am going to run out of words to describe my feelings for your cards, I am afraid I will be repeating the same things over and over again, lol. This is absolutely beautiful, your colouring is second to none, you just have that ability to bring out not only an images' beauty but a reality as well. The colours, papers, butterflies and design are perfect.
