  1. This type of card can be so difficult to make but you've done a fantastic job! It's beautiful, Natalie! I really like the way you did this! Thank you for the inspiration! :o)

  2. This is a lovely, soothing yet hopeful card Natalie and I love the way you popped one sunflower up with the bow.

  3. So sorry to hear about your friends father passing away. Your card is lovely, Natalie.

    Hugs to you!

  4. Natalie, your card is sure to be a comfort to your friend. I love the unusual touch with the die cuts. Very beautiful work.

  5. I've always loved that look of cutting out an opening in the card - in fact, I've thought of trying it so many times and I never do anything outside my little comfort bubble. You do inspire me, Natalie. I know that I need to try new things. Thanks so much for sharing your time and talents with us. Your cards are always such a blessing to me and I thank you for linking up with us. God bless your week.
