I love your card. You seem to be leaning more to the fanciful. I love all your cards, but this is more the type I would do myself. Very pretty.

Anita said...

Very pretty card Mary J. Lovely image and it's beautifully colored. Your flowers are perfect too.

Sue said...

Hello Mary
Another wonderful card and so well decorated, gorgeous flowers.
And to answer your question NZ weather is not TOO variable, at the moment it is beautiful days a little on the cool side especially morn and eve, we have had a VERY cold winter this year,which is not the norm! Springtime is in a couple of days and it will be a picture!
Smiles:)
