Diane, this is beautiful! Love the embossed BG, the wonderful way you mounted your really pretty die cut tulips, the bow, and the wonderfully mounted sentiment too! Hope you will join us for the blog hop on Monday. We are hoping to inspire people to send cards to a little 2 year old and her family. She is receiving chemo for Leukemia and being such a trooper too! Details at top of my blog! Hugs,
