Hi Dawn!

I love your cards. The pattern paper on your first card is so pretty and the colors are gorgeous. Your second card is such a cutie. The image is fabulous! Great job on both cards.

I always have the problem of messing up my cards when I stamp the sentiment so I tend to stamp it on a different cardstock and layer it so I don't mess up the main image!
