  16. great cards Monika. Congrats on your guest spot.

  17. Gorgeous scenes, especially like those backgrounds!

  18. It's so fun to seer your cards pop up on all these different challenge blogs!
    The card you made on commission suits the instructions you got so well. And I'm sure it's going to be a hit I mean, would you find a card with a bike and a grill in a store! I doubt it. It's fun to give someone a really personal card.
    The blue behind the pot was a great idea, it places the fun orange flowers And pot in the spotlight, but in a subtle way, keeping it CAS and elegant.
