Well I wish I could capture the beauty of this card. The picture doesn't do it justice. I love the colors Karen gave us this week. I went with silver and white. I always love the fabulous ribbon Karen uses on her card. Using ribbon isn't one of my talents, Hoarding it is more fitting of my style. So I went out of my comfort zone and used several ribbons from my hoard. Thanks for the jump start Karen.

If it looks even more fabulous in real life it must be really incredible because it is absolutely gorgeous in the picture. So much attention to detail, I'll bet the sparkle is even more breathtaking. Love this, Tonda.

I don't know enough words to describe how incredibly beautiful this mini masterpiece is. It looks like something that would be sitting on a movie stars dressing table, in a black and white movie! Ahhhh I just scrolled back for another look and no, I still don't have enough words to tell you how much I love this dear Tonda. TFS your heart and art!
