Beautiful card, Ashley. I love how you wrapped that seam binding (and the fact that it's seam binding!).

I DO miss your thumbnail photos! I always enjoy seeing them at the end of the posts.

I love how you've wrapped the ribbon on your card. It's a very elegant, but simple looking card. Beautiful!
