I was so inspired by this card that I tried to imitate it! I linked back to you - and while my card is not as lovely as yours, it's ok.

You have so much talent and I like trying to do the lovely things that you create. This one just hit a certain note with me. Thanks!

Hugs!

Hi Ashley! I'm sorry I didn't get over here sooner to tell you how gorgeous your card was for the Shabby Tea Room challenge. This is really, really gorgeous, girl!
And I'm so bummed you were in Raleigh and going to Archiver's. I know you designed with Kathy at 2S4U, and Raleigh is our town! How fun it would have been to meet you there!
