I just love the soft blues of your card Francesca, it's not a colour I work with often and your card makes we ask myself why !

Great use of that rose stamp as well and how you cut it off the mat, very effective.

Happy New Year.

I love that big bold rose stamp, Francesca, though I haven't yet managed to use it as effectively as you have here. The blues are gorgeous. A very striking card.

Happy New Year to you and your family.
