Hi Melody, what wonderful pictures from your neck of the woods. It's so picturesque remind's me a lot like New Zealand. I love your card very feminine especially for celebrating women. I do love all your details and your pretty laces and gems, totally luxurious. What a wonderful card and thanks so much for sharing it with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

P.S Thank you so much for all your lovely comments I have missed you and hoped you would be back with us to share your wonderful cards. I do hope your DH's surgery goes well and is successful on his neck and back. There will be nerves and apprehension but he has you at his side so he'll be fine and you'll take good loving care of him. God bless and my thoughts are with you.
Hugs
