Congratulations Kim, she is certainly sassy.
I look forward to creating some fantastic cards with her.

The card by Rachel is superb, I really love the sparkle. All the colors compliment each other. To critique the card I think the ribbon bow detracts from the wonderful picture perhaps have smaller bow.
A beautiful Card.
