  3. This is one fine use of that SU Swallowtail. I think it's one of their prettiest designs, and you've used it so well in this lovely card. It's so large, that it's sometimes difficult to show it off well (at least for me!) . You've done it extremely effectively on this card. Love it! TFS & hugs.

  4. Beautiful card Melissa...hope your darling pup enjoyed it!! Thanks for sharing with us at Fussy and Fancy!!
