Wowzers Edwina! That is super that you were able to do 2 of these cards. They are both gorgeous. Lady Anne asked us to comment on each other's cards so that we would become a closer group. I'm trying to do that but I would have loved to comment on yours anyway! xoxox Hugs~Patti

Love how you have coloured the images very similar but the cards look so different. Love the double bow on the first card and that pearl/rhinestone embellishment on the second.
