Thank you card made using the Florals Embellished and Art Philosophy cartridges.

Hello, friends!

Today's card is made using the Florals Embellished and Art Philosophy cartridges. It has been a while since I have used the Florals Embelished cartridge and thought I would dust it off and give it a whirl. I love everything about this cartridge. It has lots of layers, but I like that about it. Also, each and every cut is beautiful!

Lovely! I have a question...when you're choosing paper to use on a card or project, do you stick with coordinating ones from the same stack or mix and match? Your combinations are always so perfect!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
