  23. Your card is gorgeous Yvonne. I really like the flower you've created. I've not heard of a flower loom I'll have to look into that.

    I love your collection of flowers, I really should do something similar I love making my own too but I tend to make mine at I need them, I think having a ready made stash is a great idea.
