  1. Love the big, bold colours and patterns on your card Alison - the 3D flower accent is a really eye-catching focal point. Happy new year wishes to you and your family,

  2. Very nicely done! I struggle with the papers that have large prints, but you have used them beautifully! Great card!

  3. Wow! Your card is so beautiful! I love the sponging and the attention to all the details especially on your flower.

  4. I was on the fence about this collection but I LOVE it here! Your contrasting DSP is bold and such an attention getter!

  5. Gorgeous. Cool. Amazing. My eye just dances around your card taking in all the awesome details! This card absolutely blooms with excitement!

  6. I'm LOVING that new framelit flower set...I first decided I didn't need it, but somehow it jumped on my second order! lol! Gorgeous card...so many great new products and details! Great job with the sketch this week!

  7. This is so beautiful! The colors just jump off the Crumb Cake! Love it!
