  1. I am going to have to make this with our card group. I hope I can make a bow as beautiful as yours AND fussy cut as good as you did. I LOVE your card! It makes me want to buy the DSP, but alas it is retiring and I need to save my money for all the gorgeous new stuff. I certainly have enough DSP to make it work. Watch, I’ll be CASing!

  2. Love it, Kristi! It’s a Farmer’s Market on a card!! So pretty – especially with the Wood Textures card front! 🙂

  3. That woodgrain background surprised me and adds so much to the card! It’s so cheerful and happy! Way to go!

  4. I love everything about this. Your choice of DSP is perfect and so is that bow. I have bow envy! Love this!!

  5. This card is too cute! I have everything waiting to make the card…but I’m doing the Tiffany organization challenge and can’t find anything! LOL!!! Good job!
