Debs, Your card is gorgeous. The design itself is so pretty with the die cut border and the genius way you have created that wonderful strip of pink glitter across the top. However, your gorgeous colouring looks amazing. I love the colours you have chosen and am very taken with her furry trim. Totally beautiful Debs...
