How exciting, Sandra! You are such a star ... another DT guest gig! Well done! I wish someone would explain to me how to create a "clean" card but not necessarily "simple". I always struggle with the balance! Love the gorgeous details on this one! Hope life is a little calmer for you at the moment??? hugs xx
