What a gorgeous card. So many ways to create a beautiful card using just paper and lots of dies and tricky folding and placement!! Your coloring on mini Tilda almost disappears in the beautiful paperwork!

Jean said...

Wow Mindy, this card is so stunning from the coloring of mini Tilda to all the gorgeous tons of assored papers.. I love how you pleated the circle paper and put it on the bottom with more circles, and your butterflies and flower is so perfectly placed. I adore your colors, they are so perfect..
Hugs, Jean
