  16. Very pretty! Love the added sparkle; so fun!

  17. Jane, what a great looking card. I like how you added the yellow on top of the stenciled background. It toned the colors down a bit, and allows the various winged bugs to stand out more.

    Good luck in all of the challenged you entered. Not sure how one can keep them all straight. It amazes me at how you, that enter so many, can keep them organized.
