Beautifully colored - SUCH depth and detail! And surrounded by all the white, it is stunning. So glad to see you at CAS(E) this Sketch AND Dynamic Duos!

Bonnie, what a beautiful mum you colored. I didn't buy any this year, either. I don't put them in the ground so they are gone pretty quick. But, I sure love them.

I'm glad to find out about this CAS(E)challenge. I'll try to play in it this week.

Love your card and so wonderful for Fall.
