Hi Vicky

Your card is gorjuss as always, I really like the colours, they're so fresh and the cloud paper is very clever! Btw what did you use as threads in the buttons?

Thanks for your comments on my sepia card. I really appreaciate the input, I didn't mind your advice about more shading at all! I had asked for feedback and I really respect your talents as a card maker. So thank you for taking the time to look at my creatiions and leave comments for them ^.^

I hope you have a good day and a great time at the 70s night.

Take care
