I am speechless. This is a great work of art that you created here. I just love the papers you used, they are gorgeous altogether. And great paper piecing too on the image, the beret and all the shopping bags. This is amazing. It must have taken you ages but it was sure worth doing it. I am sure that whoever receives this card will be thrilled. Although, I would keep it to myself if I were you, it is really gorgeous.
Have a great day, and thank you for so much inspiration,
Laetitia xxx
