  1. Your card is lovely my friend. Love the color of your flowers and those sweet lady bugs really caught my eye!

  2. Zinnias are a favorite flower of mine. My daughter has a “picking” garden with zinnias in it, and my granddaughter loves to bring them inside.

    I love the little ladybugs on your card, and, of course, the gorgeous card itself! It will certainly make a nice display in the home of the recipient!
