    I have never seen kraft cardstock look elegant until now! What an outstanding technique, and it’s just a one layer card. Very well done, Cathy A!

    I love the way the flower was made using the Pinwheel die & how it perfectly matches the coloured ivy flowers. The selective colouring in a ‘banner’ shape of flowers & leaves is very effective indeed & adds superb movement to the whole design. It’s lovely to see kraft playing such a prominent part in a design.
