Unbelievable, Sabina, how you can see a sketch and change it up so effectively for a wow!!! Love all the textures you have used, and what a great way to use this ornament stamp and SB die -gotta tell you, I am falling for that crushed seam binding, Sister! Hugs!

That crushed seam binding rocks! And when I see it I instantly think of you! Well, this is another outstanding card! I love that precious embossed ornament with die! But you always create an elegant card! Beautifully done!

Fabulous, Sabrina! Love the color, that seam binding, all the embossing, just everthing. I need to find out where you buy your seam binding. I know you all had a discussion about this before but I didn't write anything down. It's growing on me and I really like the fact that you can dye it! Hope you have a fabulous weekend! Hugs!
