Oh my goodness, what an amazing card! This would be treasured by a Mother! And you could use the oval inside as a frame for a photo of the first day at school. The Image is beautiful and love the fancy ovals. Excellent work on the inside too. Thank you for sharing with us at Make it Monday.

Have a great week

Holy cow this is amazing Kathie! You knock my socks off every week.

I chuckled when I saw that you used Maisie on your card. Oops. I was supposed to use another image but when the boys sprang their need for teacher Valentines on me, I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone.

Maisie is just amazing (love her frizzy hair!).

Absolutely adorable card Kathie. I love the design of your card and how it opens. I smile too when I say that we used the same die cut. Great minds really do think a like. LOL. I love the use of the netting or what ever it is. I can't quit tell. It really is a nice addition to your card. Have a nice weekend.
