Oh, Avril...this is SOOOOO very nice! I love the burlap, the dimension you've created with your leaves, pairing up the little flag with the large die cut sentiment was a great idea! And the colors You've chosen bring it all together in such a lovely presentation!!! So glad to see you create for our challenges again at the CPT!!
