Hi Tamara

(I hope I spelt your name right :-), it is spelt differently on your blog header than it is in your signature so I wasn't sure which was right).

Your card is absolutely stunning!! Such lovely image that you have coloured perfectly and the layout is just fab. I love the threaded ribbon and those gorgeous rolled flowers.

Thank you for linking up to Make It Monday this week.
