Stunningly gorgeous Sue, it looks wonderful and the colours are super. [The photo of it turned out fine but I know what you mean, makes me mad when the photo dulls the card/creation.] Love the image coloured so nicely too. Wonder why the glitter 'fades' when photographed, I have had that issue too...BUT overall this is a beautiful card... Am I babbling on?? luv annie

Oh my dear friend, this is stunning! What a precious image. The papers are absolutely gorgeous! The poinsettia is such a lovely, festive accent and I adore the sparkly gold trims. It has been such fun seeing you post for Lili's Little Fairies... and actually I have a question! Did I totally miss you telling us you're an official DT member, not just a guest designer? What an honor! I can't even imagine the happy-dancing I would be doing. :o) Sorry if I somehow missed an announcement or something.. the weeks are so busy and I fear I miss something sometimes. :(

Hugs and blessings!
