The first one is so pretty Sylvia, love that border punch and the stitching and the second one certainly has the wow factor, love how you've layered the frames. Two beautiful cards. xx

Another two great cards, Sylvia.
I like the bright pink background paper on the second card. It makes the lighter ovals stand out more. Rachel.

Both are gorgeous as always, Sylvia and so different from each other.
I like the heart on the second one through the bow, that's a lovely idea.
Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Two fabulous cards, the first one is beautifully put together, great image and lovely lace border but the second one, even though it is more plain and simple is my favorite as I love deeper pinks.

Both are fab, but I have to say I do love the tryptic card with the dressform and the punched borders the best :-)

That dress card reminds me of a dress *shop*, the way you created a card that opens with 'doors'. So amazing!
