Carole *Day 5*

Carole is a master of all styles! Check her bright, fun card:

I love the sweet, simplicity of this design! The bright flowers are perfectly colored and the dainty pearls make the perfect centers. The butterflies add a touch of whimsy and the watercolor effect adds to the appeal of this card! Finally, who can resist that splendid, big, white bow??!!
Here is my take:

See you tomorrow, my bloggin' buddies, for our last day with Carole!
