♥ Paula ♥ said...

Hiya Tracy, I was looking at your lovely little creation and I couldnt decide if I liked it or not. But I really looked and realised it wasnt that i never liked it, but rather than it was very different from what I usually see. Thank you so much for inspiring me to use more than the 'safe' colours.

Happy Thursday xx
