Beautiful card, that die is fabulous and so are the gorgeous poinsettias. In regards to the Bearly Mine papers, I was lucky to have been on their DT for a long time so we were allowed to use any papers we desired. Pity they are closed down as there are some wonderful designs in my folder.xx  {aNNie}

The embossing really sets those poinsettias off a treat. Finally managing to get round everyones makes for Mary's challenge. This flu virus certainly is a nasty one and leaves you feeling so weak. Hugs Mrs A .
