I love that die! And I love the use of those two roses on the kite. That was such a great idea. I love the added clouds to give you that up in the air flying feeling! And that gorgeous big bow at the bottom just tops it off! Beautiful! I love your choice of colors, love the papers you used and the added inking is a fantastic addition to top this amazing card off. Thank you so much for sharing with us in the March Challenge. I'm really glad you did and your card is outstanding!
