Very sweet card, pretty colors and I like the flourish coming from behind the panel.

Tracy said...

You know,I think No could just draw fairies from here on out and I'd be one happy camper. She sees the most wonderful little characters in her crafty brain. This card is beautiful and congrats on checking one off the Christmas card list. Hugs!
