Hi Carolyn - How fun has this been!!! Wow, more beautiful stamps to tempt the crafter. They're all beautiful and each day I said "oh this is my favorite". Ya know how it is. But if I had to pick it would be Naturally Styled. That dress just jumped right out at me. I've always wanted a dress like that, or at least to make one, problem being, where would I wear it? ( hee, hee) Anyway, I adore your card. This image is soooo beautiful and you have truly done her justice. Thanks for being a part, have a wonderful day and I'll talk to you after the hop. Hugs, Sharon :o)
