Gorgeous card! Love the sweet pink trimmings and the darling sentiment that set off the castle. Thanks for demonstrating that a clearly stamped image can be the focal point without being colored. (I don't have Copics...) Love how you did this with the baby Jesus stamp at Christmas time.

This is such a sweet, yet whimsical card. The ribbon adds a lot as does the choice of papers. I like leaving the image stamped and not colored. Good job.
