Hi Silke,
This is SO pretty and the colours really pop out from the card. What a sweet little bird from the Sing to the Lord set, the flowers look so lovely with the gorgeous ribbon and button (nice touch with the white curly wiring!). The scoring and the lace edge really set this card off a treat! Well done - very classy!
