  25. Every card today is just stunning in it's own way! Beautiful job. I love the bee card & the honeycomb die you used. Love the wet w/c way you did the butterflies. And love the dainty dies you used on the last 2 cards, showcasing the beautiful Unity flowers.

  26. Some very elegant cards today! Each brings something different to love about it, but I think I love the butterfly, "Courage is My Strength" card the best. I am intrigued by stamping on to wet watercolor paper! What a wonderful and unique technique!
