I just love your take on the sketch Sabrina! And the bright colors with the beautiful pearls just make your card!

The flower is colored so nicely, Sabrina! The swirls you've used for the corners are brilliant. Great Easter card, here in MI Easter is usually cold and yucky, but this card is so encouraging.

I do not think that your card is too bright. It's lovely Sabrina. It reminds me of the yellow and greens of spring.I love the lace that you used at the bottom of your card. You always pay such close atention to details on your cards and that is just one of the many reason why I love your cards so much. :)

Sabrina, Please let me know it my comment on your Incredible Dafodil card came through. My computer sneezed, and everything went black...and it said "Thank you" in the comment section, but who knows?

Sabrina, I don't think this is too bright at all. It's time for lighter colors after all the cold and dreary weather. Your lily is beautifully colored and I love this sketch. Great card, friend.
