I love the colors you selected, so fresh and springlike! I like the fact that there is enough space inside the frame to include a special verse. So many times the space is too small to incorporate more than a greeting. Thanks for sharing.

Feb 20, 2013 - 08:02:08

Beautiful card! I love the sentiment of it … so true!!!
