What a wonderful and beautiful card, Grace! This Verse is so calming...and full of love! I love the soft robin egg blue with the brown for your color theme. The sky is so beautiful and soft! The "Birds, Borders and Corners" stamp is delightful to see, and reminds me of looking outside just as the sun after the sun has started to set...when you can see the outlines of the birds and other creations. Your die-cut is gorgeous. (I don't recall the name, sorry!) I love your beautiful bow and the small detail of the pearls. Grace, you make every card a masterpiece. God bless!
