WOW! Sue, I love that you used vellum AND created an aperture card - the card is dynamite! Gorgeously colored and vibrant even with the pastel pink! You always manage to bring tons of color into your projects, and they always grab my attention. So much snowy beauty in your sweet little HM story, and the die cuts are amazing. It's a gorgeous card! hugs, de
