Hi Blanche! Wow, I see highlights and casting shadows on this Tilda! I am also noticing how the card flows and takes you around the loop! Inside joke!!!;-)
But, no kidding, this card is adorable and beautifully done. I love the way you used the twill ribbon on your sentiment tag! Hope you're enjoying the heat! Hugs... Barb <><
