Absolutely stunning, Mary Lou! Your cards always make me stop and stare for a while, just to make sure I didn't miss any of the details you always put into them. I love how you always use such a wide variety of products and techniques to create such masterpieces. You have coloured this image so beautifully, and the card showcases it perfectly. (The more I see that Magnolia tag, the more I think I "need" it! lol) Kim's idea of popping up the wing was brilliant...the extra dimension is great!

Wishing you and your family very Merry Christmas!
