  17. So much to check out on your card...so pretty and love the way you placed the 'leaves' under the main die with the image.xxx

  18. This little Miss is obviously having a fabulous time & was most enjoyable to see her dancing at the Snippet Playground. Love the icey feel you achieved with the webby ribbon and your leaves tucked in behind that elegant S/B oval. I also liked the layering you did with these ovals. Loved the color combo you selected and the blue sparkling snowflakes enhanced it so much, as did those gorgeous pearls trims. TFS & Hugs
