Wow Darlene...this is SO EERIE!! Take a look at the card that I posted this morning. There must have been something in the air. Needless to say, I love your card. The blue pops so wonderfully against the white.

Oh, seeing the comment above about it being eerie has me very intrigued ;) lol!!!

Your cards are BEAUTIFUL!!! I love your hummingbird and the three panels. I also love your white and teal card with the three eye catching diecut pieces!

Thank you for playing along this week at Freshly Brewed Challenges!
