I love the colors on this one Carol. I also love that die and the way you positioned the sentiment panel. It is very nice of you to remember the anniversary. Have a good weekend. We just got rain but might get snow tonight. Happy New Year.

What a beautiful design Carol! I love the blended colors and how the pattern goes well with your embossed background! They don't compete with each other and compliment the card very nicely too! Best wishes for a happy, healthy and creative New Year friend! HUGS

Your card is really beautiful Carol and I love the way you've matched up the stamp with the embossing folder. Your colour blending looks very pretty too.
I'm sure your cousin's widow will really love it and will be so pleased that you made a card for the Anniversary. It really does help to know others remember that special and very difficult day. Hugs, Barbxx
