    Wow Jill! This is card is so profoundly beautiful. Love all that is taking place in the background but the star of the show is this ever elegant and glamorous Poinsettia. Talk about a show stopper. The colour choice for this flower is stellar and I can’t begin to tell you how much this card makes me want this stamp. I must and will have it for certain. Lol. Thanks sweetie for another masterpiece. Hugs.

    Beautiful card and thanks for the great video.

    The unusual colourway of this traditional image makes the card outstanding & the techniques are utterly effective yet not difficult to achieve. I love these tutorials of yours – they teach me so much & I particularly like that you make me think ‘outside the box’.
    Thank you so much.
