The background embossing is ODBD's Large Butterfly Plate...

Hi Chris~

I can't believe how beautiful and colorful this card is! It is lovely, Chris! I really love how you colored the centers on the flowers. Wonderful!

I'm sorry I haven't been around. Today is the first day I have been able to even sit up at the computer in a while. I have been really sick. Still getting over it.


Glad I had a chance to see this!

His,
Traci S.
