What a wonderful card, I just love those pretty flowers you've made! And you've arranged them so beautifully on this card too. Gorgeous!
PS: You asked about the name of the oval dies I've used for some of my cards lately - they're from Spellbinders and the set is called "Timeless Rectangle".

My word..you've taken that image and brought amazing life to it. How you've extended the picture off onto the card itself is wonderful. Love the butterfly border and that lattice and the exceptionally detailed and gorgeous flowers. FANTASTIC card Pat! :)
