  26. First off love your blog, it is really cute and so fantasy-like. 0_o I like that!
    Second you card, I really like the colors and the theme that you chose. I also like that the envelope ties it all together. I think it would flow better if you didn't at the border to all the sides where the champagne bottle is that way it looks as if it's a whole card, the way it is now sort of breaks it up. Ya know? Well it's not like I'm a card making expert and stuff. TFS and great job :)
