Hi Nic

I can't see why you are not happy with this card, it's gorgeous, some cards are difficult to photo, I think we have all been there. Your photo looks ok to me a lot better than some of mine, some of the tatting threads are very hard and nearly always look totally different.

Have a nice day
Margaret

Coops your card is lovely! I wonder why it is that we often dislike our own creations! The embossing is lovely and the image is so sweet...mind you I would die if a butterfly landed on my nose...I hate fluttery things lol xxx
