Lee-Anne says, "Love all the details and texture on this!"

Jenny says, "I love the Color Burst effect, the light shining through the trees and the adorable bird perched on the sentiment!"
Yasmina says, "I love her card and this cutie bird."
Maria F. says, "Those sun rays and that birdie looking back at them... framed with leaves of a tree. Ann's card just takes me right there to that spot!"

Becca says, "This whole scene took my breath away. The vibrant night sky is amazing and I love the silhouetted house and trees. So much talent all in one place!"

Melissa says, "I love Susan's use of sprays, embossing paste, copper, ink, and embossing powder! Oh wow! I love that copper tree. The sprayed background with the stenciled stars is beautiful."

Elina says, "Love those hand-carved stamps! Simple but yet very powerful. The black stamped images are a great match to the brusho coloured background."

Shirley says, "The lace and patterned paper on the background add a wonderful softness and vintage feel to this card. Great sentiment too!"

Sanna says, "Love the dimensionality and the design on this card! Very eye-catching, great card!"
