Sabrina -

I love this scene! Your card is so serene... I get spring fever just looking at it! I love the die cuts you used to frame it and the lace... Well you know how I feel about lace! The DP you used frames the image so beautifully. You always create the most beautiful things... but that comes from a beautiful heart! Blessings my friend...
