Jacqueline *Day 3*

As soon as I saw this card by Jacqueline in the flickr gallery, I just knew I would have to share it: I love this wreath of pretty flowers! The paper piecing adds wonderful texture and shading. Jacqueline's color choices of flowers really "pop" against the light background! I love how she has used the same flower stamp for both the background AND the flowers in the wreath. Finally, the text in the center of the wreath adds such an elegant touch!

Here is my take. This is definitely a CASE of Jacqueline's card--no new original thought by me!!


Thanks again for stopping by!
