Really like all the DT cards, but in particular, the one by Brenda with the lady in red dress and hat by the brick wall. Great use of both stamps!

Annie said...

I've entered again, but my second card really doesn't show the sparkle on the paper. So hard to catch in a photo. Looking forward to the next challenge as it's great to be using my Penny Black stamps again.
