I have a real problem using my designer paper. I am a hoarder. I must have 50,000 sheets of paper, and for some reason it sits waiting to be cut. Maybe that's it... the cutting is so final!
Today I made an effort to use MS Hydrangea and some Italian dp I bought ages ago. The colors in the paper determined the colors I painted my flowers. I hope the birthday girl likes it, and that you do too.
Have a great day.
