Wow Mina, another stunning image - look at those eyelashes, and her hair is beautiful! (Wish I could have hair like that, but mine just grows outwards like a bush, not downwards and flowing LOL!)
Anyway, I love the way you've added the glitter to the water - such a beautiful card.
Hope you've had a good day with your Dad.
Love, Andrea xx

Hi there Mina, WOW you've done it again, your colour choice and colouring is spot on, so delicate! Fabulous card:0) xxx

35 years! Wow, thats fantastic and wonderful. What a struggle to find the right kind of present for that. Im lucky my husband (of 18 years) still likes his xbox games, dvd's or camera gear! ;)

Anyway, I adore this image Mina - lovely colours in her hair and the pearls look amazing.

Stunning bow, and a fabulously breathtaking card.
