This is for MMTPT302 - it will go out to JoAnn today. I tried to load it up with bright and cheerful colors, and of course flowers always mean Spring. Now that I've glued it down, I wish I'd popped up the focal image, because that top Calypso Coral edge piece was thicker than I'd thought and it took some creative glueing to get things battened down all around. I hope it gets to you without popping apart, JoAnn! And even if it does, know that the pieces are full of my most heartfelt wishes for peace and healing for you!

That wonderful button die again! It makes me think that I must go back and check some silicone icing molds that I think would make good "buttons" used with clay. Your flower image is so well cut that at first I thought it was somehow part of the embossed label, till I looked again. I love the way the DP on both sides has blue and deep red flowers, and yet they're so different. This is definitely full of Spring cheer.

This card is so pretty and cheerful that it would cheer up and heal anyone! Seriously...love the embossing on the die-cute background...that was really neat.
