Aggie this is beautiful in all ways. Love your journaling and the LOVE hearts dangling from the pretty ribbon across the page. Your background and blending is gorgeous too. Lovely card.

Just wonderful! I was reading your comments on my page and thinking about how you do such a beautiful job in GIMP when so many tutorials etc are done for PS/PSE... you are really so skilled... your blended paper is stunning and I think your recolouring is so good I would never have known! Love the vellum look to your paper too... This is super pretty and the verse is wonderful - I am sure everyone in your family would love to receive this card. Just gorgeous.
