I love Bonnie's stylish card. The paper, designed by Bonnie, is bold and yet elegant and is matted and layered beautifully onto plain coloured card. A layer of torn mulberry paper adds a magical touch to the design and the ribbons and flowers surround and highlight the sentiment. Gorgeous work!

Ileana chose #122 Crafting Stellalena 
Wonderful background and choice of colours. Beautiful sweet image and great colouring. I love bubbles and sentiment dies.

Dagmara chose #158 Chris 
Beautiful work! Wonderfully coloured stamp and a delightful mixed media background.

This is so well put together with lots of different elements and layers.

Koyel chose #122 Dreja 
Love the background work. And the dies

Dagmara chose #127 Crafting Stellalena

An ingenious die-cut and fun little digi. The whole very childlike and cheerful. I love it.

Love the grungy wire bird and the thread really sets this card apart!
