    Fantastic projects. I love that gorgeous ribbon on Jenifer C card and the bright colours on the butterfly really makes it pop from the pink doily. Jennifer D’s gift bag is very sweet – such a cute stamp. Karen’s décor piece is a fantastic mix of the soft and hard with the pretty lilies and lace over that rusty metal background.
