This is so pretty. I am interested in making cards like these myself. I found you on Our Daily Bread Blog. I am now following you. I have found some other blogs with these creative ideas and have asked if they would be willing to advise me what is involved. I haven't heard back from anyone yet. I also have a blog http://talesfrommyjournal.blogspot.com so you could check me out. My blog is about my hair jewelry. I hope you will get back to me and stop by my little window on the internet.
