Karen said...

Oh my goodness, Sue! This could not be any sweeter. Not only is the image one of the most adorable I've seen, but your card design is pure brilliance. I absolutely love the honeycomb base as opposed to the more typical honeycomb papers or embossing. You always find ways to do things at least a little bit different and even more amazing. :o) I couldn't love more! Beautifully done, my dear friend. And I'm so happy you had a lovely birthday! You deserve every happiness. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
