  9. Your card has a wonderful sweetness about it Colleen, and makes a beautiful sympathy card. Thank you so much for joining us at The Card Concept.

  10. Just wonderful! What an intriguing challenge concept. I'm thinking clean and layered, too, but I have a terrible time defining (and producing) different styles.

  11. Really pretty card, I think it could be clean and simple or clean and layered. Rebecca x
