I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Karen said...

My dear friend, you did this challenging technique to perfection! (As you do with every technique.) I love the area you chose for the spotlight, as it gets a little bit of everything... and I still cannot get over how incredibly you color animals. Simply exquisite. I love the circular paper to coordinate with the technique and the musical flourish is gorgeous. Beautifully done as always, Sue! I hope you're having a lovely week. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
