Anyway, our theme this time is...


Ok, that's really 2 themes I, you have a choice to make, which wasn't hard for me as I do love the fussy and fancy!

Definitely not CAS, but it's not too much FAF either (I presume it can stand up on it's own?)! Very pretty hun, love that image and the bold pink teamed with those gorgeous papers and your pretty details. I might even have to try for this challenge myself if CAS is on offer! Huggles xx

Gail said...

This is absolutely gorgeous. It is fussy and fancy as far as I'm concerned, too...and I know how long this might have taken you to make! No, this is NOT CAS. Hahhahaa. I adore your coloring on this LOTV image. It's perfect and these papers are outstanding. Your sewing is great and I wish I could sew that straight...I need to practice more to do it this nicely. Your embellishments are perfect with the image and don't overpower it. I love the card! Hugs, Gail
