  3. Wow! Ich habe lange nicht mehr so wunderschöne Herbst-Karten gesehen.
    Ich bin total begeistert.
    Die Karten sind beide so fein und zart gearbeitet, mit diesen vielen Details.
    Etwas ganz Besonderes.

  4. Oh Marianne, these are both absolutely delightful. I really feel as though I could walk right into the forest, your scenes look so 3-D. I recognised your style as soon as I saw the images on the Lavinia challenge page - you fussy-cut and decoupage so beautifully! I'm really looking forward to seeing your next batch of design inspiration!
