I love this card, it is soooo gorgeous. What a great way to celebrate the day, love that bumble bee and your background is perfect.

Until this morning I had totally missed that it is Earth Day, it's good to see that someone is on the ball. With everyone staying home at the moment, it seems that nature is fighting back and if lockdown lasts a few more weeks more weeks we may just start saving the planet.

Ooh, this is lovely. So delicate. I should've come here for inspiration before I began one of my cards for the current DT spot ;-) This is really effective. How have I missed so much? Sorry...my life seems to be busier than ever, despite the 'lockdown'.
