    I love your card! Very sweet and qute. I love the way you match the backgroundpaper to a detail in the stamp in stead of the color on the main image, it brings so much more life to the whole card .I tend to get stuck to the “main” color:) I will keep that in mind for my next projects!(Please excuse my poor english)
