Beautiful card and the coloring is fabulous! You've reminded me that I have this stamp somewhere in my stash and that I really need to get it out and use it again, lol! Thanks for joining us at the MIUCB in December and we hope to see you back again soon!

I like this card Carol - a lot of interest and visual texture in the background, the colors making the focal image rise to the front and the sentiment sideways really add to a very nice design!
