Karen said...

Oh Sue... I bet you knew I would adore every single millimeter of this beauty! It's magical, beautiful, whimsical, and my beloved purple! I adore the silhouette and the exquisite sentiments. (What beautiful fonts!) Your inking is spectacular. I have the hardest time getting my dusty concord to stay light and magical.. I'm too heavy handed, I suppose. This is perfect! The design is lovely, as are the dies and flower. And oh my, the paper! I adore it. :o) Magically done, my talented friend! Thank you for the extra smiles today from your posts! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
