Both cards are lovely. I can never get that sponging over embossing to look right but yours is fab! Your coloring of the image is so unique-great job!

Both cards are gorgeous Heather but my favourite is the first one (I'm a purple kinda girl...think Donny Osmond lol)The flower just pops off the card (as does the blue). The sponged silver paint looks flabby on the embossed
