  3. Beth, very beautiful card. Great design, so pretty. Love how you changed up the colors on this one. Take care.


  4. Beth....I just love coming to see your posts! Your card is so adorable...the violet colours and that nail those every time the way you colour!!!!!

  5. This is sooooo sweet! I love the way it opens up and how the paper is curled back on the front, sort of a sneak peek as to what's inside! Gorgeous inside and out! Love the flowers too!

    Very generous of you to offer candy for the challenge. I always want to play along but think I'm not talented enough so I chicken out. I do better with random draws hehe. I'll look at my HM stash and see if I can muster up the courage to take part. But I won't make any promises!

  6. Absolutely gorgeous card and I LOVE the layout!

    Snoopy :D

  7. Oh my...I love this image! When I got this stamp it was a booger to color with pencils, but I bet my copics would be easier...totally love your card! ♥ Sue K
