Grace is a watercolor. The metallic watercolor on the leaf card is very pretty. I also really like the water color that you used on the wreath diecut. It's very bright and cheery. My favorite though, is the thank you card using the spiral stencil. It looks like one of those spirographs that we used to play with when I was younger. And I love that. I also really like the colors.

Tina Z. said...

wow, gorgeous cards!

Annette Gordon said...

WOW! WOW! WOW! I don't know where to start! All of these cards are stunning. I expectantly liked the wreath card and the thanks card. Amazing! But that black card with the pretty metallic water colour, is out of this park!! Amazing! I just love the image and the beautiful contrast.
