Love your fun ATC and the inky panel on your card x

Sharon said...

Wow! That layout on your card is just stunning Kathy - it really draws your eye into the floral silhouette. Would you mind if I CASE that design sometime? Probably won't make it look as good as you have though. Super inky blending and the stamp layering looks brilliant. Super funky bird on the ATC too. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More xx

Your LIM design is so striking, Kathy! The vibrant shafts of colour either side of the silhouette frame it perfectly and look really dramatic. That cute bird on your ATC really made me smile too :)
